Abstract

This report showcases the activities and results achieved by the Adaptation Committee in the implementation of its 2013–2015 work plan, which was organized into three interrelated work streams:

  1. Technical support and guidance to the Parties on adaptation action
  2. Technical support and guidance to the Parties on means of implementation
  3. Awareness-raising, outreach and sharing of information

The report also provides an outlook to planned activities for 2016–2018. The new work plan not only builds on the results from the first work plan but also reflects the need to remain flexible and responsive to views and needs of Parties and relevant stakeholders.

This overview report elaborates the achievements and plans of the Adaptation Committee as they relate to the provision of technical support and guidance to the Parties on adaptation action and means of implementation (section II), and highlights the Committee’s current and future efforts in reaching out, raising awareness and sharing information (section III). The report concludes with the Committee’s vision for sustaining and enhancing the momentum for coherent adaptation action (section IV).
