Technical paper 2017. Opportunities and options for integrating climate change adaptation with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030.

 

This technical paper explores opportunities and options for integrating adaptation with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015– 2030 as identified by Parties and non-Party stakeholders through their practical experiences. It is primarily based on discussions held at the technical expert meetings on adaptation, which took place on 16 and 17 May 2017 in Bonn, Germany, in conjunction with the forty-sixth sessions of the subsidiary bodies. Building on the technical paper contained in document FCCC/TP/2016/6 (e-publication format below), this paper furthers the understanding of how good practices and lessons learned can lay the foundation for the enhanced implementation of adaptation actions in the pre-2020 period and beyond.
