UNEP Adaptation Gap Report 2023
The Adaptation Gap Report series aims to support decision-making at global and national levels by answering three key questions regarding the global process of adapting to climate change: What are we doing today to adapt? To what extent are we currently reducing climate risks? To what extent will our adaptation trajectory help us reduce future climate risks?
To do this, the report series provides annual global assessments of progress within three central elements of the global adaptation process: planning, finance, and implementation. In addition to the report’s core offering, the 2023 iteration of the report will also provide an assessment of adaptation finance gaps, and the loss and damage. The Adaptation Gap Report is co-produced with UNEP, UNEP-Copenhagen Climate Center (UNEP-CCC) and the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP), which is led by UNEP, WMO, UNFCCC, IPCC, GCF, GEF and UNU.
This event features key findings from the Adaptation Gap Report 2023. Discussions will follow the presentation and focus on the importance to increase adaptation effectiveness, while assessing progress in global adaptation efforts, reducing loss, and evaluating the current adaptation finance gap.
