SIDE EVENT: Enhancing the Delivery of Readiness and Capacity Building Support for Climate Change Adaptation
Hosted by: Adaptation Fund, Climate Technology Centre and Network, and Paris Committee on Capacity-Building
Wednesday, June 19, 2019
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
UNFCCC SB50 Climate Change Meetings, Room Kaminzimmer
The Adaptation Fund Board Secretariat, the UNFCCC’s Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), and the UNFCCC Paris Committee on Capacity-Building (PCCB) will convene organizations and stakeholders that provide readiness and capacity-building support for adaptation to developing countries. The overall objective is to raise awareness on available readiness and capacity-building support for adaptation and to increase accessibility of information on available support through a new bulletin. The partnership would provide information from organizations providing such support to developing countries under the UN Convention and Paris Agreement, on available readiness and capacity-building support to access and program adaptation finance. The bulletin will foster information from providers of readiness support for adaptation and provide encouragement to organizations providing readiness and capacity-building support to contribute information. Effective coordination of such information is key to strengthening collaboration and complementarity in delivery of capacity-building support and to increase developing country access to information and content on available readiness and capacity-building support for adaptation from organizations under and outside the UN Convention and Paris Agreement. The bulletin is expected to promote collaboration, partnerships and complementarity in delivery of readiness and capacity-building support to strengthen quality of technical assistance and other forms of support delivered to developing countries to support climate change resilience-building on the ground.
