Adaptation Committee #3

Cover Adaptation Committee 3
A Germanwatch pre-sessional briefing on the AC ́S third meeting (18th to 20th of June, 2013)

The Adaptation Committee is the UNFCCC´s key adaptation body aiming to increase the coherence and promote coordination on matters related to adaptation. At its third meeting (18 to 20 June, 2013) the AC has to deal with a number of agenda items. Of particular interest may be the modalities and guidelines for National Adaptation Plans for non-LDC developing countries, the preparation of a workshop on monitoring and evaluation of adaptation, the conceptualisation of the overview report and thematic reports, and the annual adaptation forum.

This briefing paper provides background to the issues discussed, mostly based on the Secretariat´s preparatory documents, but with additional analyses and comments provided by Germanwatch.
