COP21 requested the secretariat to prepare annually a technical paper on opportunities to enhance adaptation action, as well as options to support their implementation. The paper is to be prepared on the basis of technical expert meetings on adaptation (TEM-A) that are being organized as part of the 2016–2020 technical examination process (TEP-A).
This technical paper explores opportunities and options for, as well as barriers to, enhancing adaptation planning in relation to vulnerable ecosystems, communities and groups. It draws primarily on the discussions among Parties and non-Party stakeholders held at the technical expert meeting on adaptation that took place on 9 and 10 May 2018 in Bonn in conjunction with the first part of the forty-eighth sessions of the subsidiary bodies as well as the discussions held at the various regional technical expert meetings. The paper presents case studies and other information on links among vulnerable ecosystems, groups and communities and the challenges associated with integrating them into adaptation planning and action with a view to identifying concrete opportunities for strengthening resilience, reducing vulnerability and increasing understanding and implementation of adaptation in the context of enhancing pre-2020 action.
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.
This technical paper provides an initial exploration of opportunities and options for reducing vulnerability and mainstreaming climate change adaptation, including through the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans as identified by Parties and non-Party stakeholders through their practical experiences. It is primarily based on discussions held at the TEMs on adaptation, which took place on 24 and 25 May 2016 in Bonn, Germany, in conjunction with the forty-fourth sessions of the subsidiary bodies. The paper is intended to contribute to the understanding of how good practices and lessons learned can lay the foundation for the enhanced implementation of pre-2020 adaptation actions and beyond.
