RegionsAdapt Brief Report 2019

Regions4
Created: 2/03/2020 - Updated: 2/04/2020

Abstract

By joining the RegionsAdapt initiative, regional governments commit to annually disclose their data on climate risks and adaptation through CDP’s States and Regions questionnaire. Each year, Regions4 publishes a summary of the data to inform about regional governments’ ambitious actions to adapt to climate change. The annual disclosure process helps RegionsAdapt members to better understand the risks they face from climate change, measure their progress and learn from each other’s adaptation actions.

In 2019, 28 RegionsAdapt members from 17 countries in each geographic region of the world disclosed their data, representing almost 200 million people, and covering more than 5.3 million km2 of the world’s surface area.
