Adaptation Partnership: review of current and planned adaptation

The Adaptation Partnership, co-chaired by the United States, Spain, and Costa Rica, seeks to encourage effective adaptation by catalyzing action and fostering communication among the various institutions and actors engaged in the effort to scale up adaptation and resilient development around the world. As part of this effort, the Adaptation Partnership commissioned a review of planned and existing adaptation activities in 12 sub-regions across Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. This review provides an inventory of regional and country-level adaptation activities and a summary of key adaptation priorities, based on documents like the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s National Adaptation Programs of Action and National Communications. It also identifies gaps and opportunities for scaling up and enhancing collaboration. It can be accessed from the Adaptation Partnership website here.
