This meeting, convened by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), provides a forum for technical experts, key industry stakeholders and relevant international organizations to have an informal discussion on advancing climate change adaptation and resilience building for international transportation across closely interlinked global supply chains.
It aims to identify effective ways to support adaptation action, resilience and capacity building and to develop policy recommendations to help inform the UN Climate Summit in September 2019 and contribute towards advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The event will also explore options for an informal international transport adaptation forum.
