Enhancing the Delivery of Readiness and Capacity Building Support for Climate Change Adaptation
The Adaptation Fund Board (AFB) secretariat, Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), and the Paris Committee on Capacity-building (PCCB) have partnered to bring together organizations that are providing readiness and capacity-building support for adaptation at a side-event on the margins of the 50th sessions of the subsidiary bodies (SB50) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany. The side-event will take place on Wednesday, 19 June 2019.
The side-event will provide an opportunity for organizations providing readiness and capacity-building support to enhance adaptation action in developing countries to provide input into development of the bulletin for providers of readiness and capacity-building for adaptation which will be launched at the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) in Santiago, Chile. The bulletin will provide information from the organizations providing such support, to developing country Parties to the UNFCCC, Kyoto Protocol and Paris Agreement, including the type of readiness and capacity-building support available and how Parties can access the support. In addition, there will be a general discussion on how delivery of readiness and capacity-building support can be enhanced. The AFB secretariat/CTCN/PCCB partnership also intends to promote collaboration, partnerships and complementarity in the delivery of readiness and capacity-building support which in turn could strengthen the quality of technical assistance and other forms of support delivered to developing countries to enhance the programming of adaptation finance and implementation of resilience activities on the ground.
