The technical examination process on adaptation (TEP-A) was established at COP 21 as part of the enhanced action prior to 2020 in the decision adopting the Paris Agreement. The process is organized by the SBSTA and SBI and conducted by the Adaptation Committee (AC). Each year adaptation areas of particular relevance to Parties and non-Party stakeholders will be addressed.
The umbrella topic for the 2016 TEP-A is ‘’Reducing vulnerability and mainstreaming climate change adaptation, including through the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans”.
As part of the TEP-A, two technical expert meetings on adaptation (TEM-As) are organized at SB 44. The second TEM-A took place on Wednesday 25 May, room Chamberhall (Plenarsaal). Under the 2016 umbrella topic, this meeting focused on effective policy frameworks and institutional arrangements for adaptation planning and implementation, including for multi-level governance and monitoring and evaluation.
