COP23 official side event: What is excellence in climate adaptation?

Excellence in Climate Adaptation

Many governments, NGO’s, businesses, financial organisations, knowledge institutes, and international organisations are engaged in climate adaptation projects. They face similar challenges but fail to connect adequately to each other to share knowledge and best practices. To become more effective in climate adaptation, we need to create a common understanding of what effective adaptation is and how this can be measured.
