As part of its work plan, the UNFCCC Adaptation Committee will convene a workshop on national adaptation goals/indicators and their relationship with the SDGs and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), with a view to providing broad technical guidance to Parties on the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation actions and mobilizing knowledge and experience in the context of relevant international frameworks for adaptation planning and implementation.
The workshop aims to achieve two objectives: 1) exchange views on national adaptation goals/indicators and related data collection, M&E and reporting frameworks; and 2) inform Parties on what is possible in terms of national adaptation goals/indicators and how such goals and indicators relate to the global goal on adaptation.
The workshop is co-organized by the UN University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), in collaboration with UNFCCC and with support from the Governments of Japan, Australia, Germany and Ireland as well as the UN Office for DRR (UNISDR).
dates: 24-25 July 2018
