Abstract

A synthesis report by the Adaptation Committee in the context of the recognition of adaptation efforts of developing country Parties.

The Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA) requested the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat to prepare synthesis reports every two years. These reports focus on specific adaptation themes, providing relevant lessons learned and good practices in developing country Parties, in the context of the recognition of their adaptation efforts. 

This synthesis report, the second in the series, is focused on “Efforts of developing countries in assessing and meeting the costs of adaptation.” It describes efforts of developing country Parties in assessing and meeting the costs of adaptation as reported through a selection of national reports and communications and as documented in other relevant reports published under the UNFCCC, by the operating entities of the financial mechanism and by other relevant organizations, agencies and programmes.

The objective is to synthesize relevant lessons, insights, and good practices in developing country Parties, with respect to i) assessing the costs of adaptation and ii) meeting the costs of adaptation.
