The technical examination process on adaptation was established by the Paris Agreement to promote enhanced action prior to 2020. The technical expert meetings (TEMs) on adaptation are at the core of this process.
In 2018, the TEM-A will be focused on Adaptation planning for vulnerable groups, communities and ecosystem. The event is organised jointly by the Subsidiary Bodies, the Adaptation Committee and guided by the High Level Climate Champions.
In 2017, the TEMs were focused on Integrating climate change adaptation with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The event was organised jointly by the Subsidiary Bodies, the Adaptation Committee and guided by the High Level Climate Champions.
The two-day event involved the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Ms. Patricia Espinosa, the High Level Climate Champions, Special Envoy H.E. Ms. Hakima El Haite (Morocco) and H.E. Minister Mr. Inia Seruiratu (Fiji), as well as high level representatives of the custodian organisations of the three processes, national policy-makers, implementers, investors from different regions and at different levels.
