Adapting to climate change has risen to ever greater prominence as a challenge for communities, businesses and local governments, financial institutions, and the international climate policy community
What counts as adaptation, what resources need to be mobilized, and how to measure successful adaptation all need to be better addressed to meet the Paris Agreement’s Global Goal on Adaptation.
In the run-up to COP-26, this session will address, through a series of expert presentations and a panel discussion, the use of adaptation metrics in national adaptation systems, in adaptation finance, and in resilience-based projects.
Understanding what adaptation metrics need to be deployed in these different contexts is one of the greatest of these challenges, and, at present, there is limited consensus on a path forward.
The participants will explore current use of metrics and prospective advances in the field to facilitate solutions to the challenge of climate adaptation.
