Video summary – TEM-A 2017

In the global effort to build resilient societies, 2015 was a landmark year: the world witnessed the creation of three international frameworks—the Paris Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction—intended to steer the planet towards a secure and sustainable future.

The international community was then faced with the challenge of understanding how best to move forward on implementing these three agendas.

On May 16-17, the UNFCCC Adaptation Committee took up this challenge and convened policymakers, civil society organizations, scientists, private sector representatives, and other stakeholders for the second annual technical expert meeting on adaptation (TEM-A).
