On the margins of the ADAPTATION FUTURES 2016 conference in Rotterdam, the UNFCCC's Adaptation Committee is organizing an Adaptation Forum that can be viewed live via webcast.

Date and time: Thursday 12 May, 13.45 – 15.30, Rotterdam Town Hall

The Adaptation Committee is the overall advisory body on adaptation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to reach out to stakeholders and gather new insights, knowledge and experiences on adaptation action and support. The goal of this Adaptation Forum is two-fold:

  • To inform conference participants of the adaptation aspects of the Paris Agreement; and
  • To receive input from participants on tasks under the Paris Agreement where the Adaptation Committee has a clear role

Input received from participants will help in shaping the future adaptation regime under the UNFCCC and inform Parties’ planning, implementing and evaluating of adaptation actions and support.

Organised:  by  UNFCCC Adaptation Committee
Partner: Government of the Netherlands
Chairs: Minpeng Chen and Don Lemmen, Co-Chairs of the Adaptation Committee
