The adaptation gap report 2017
This report explores key opportunities and challenges associated with assessing progress on climate adaptation at the global level, addressing one of the main questions on ways to move forward, arising from the goals of the Paris Agreement. The report synthesizes information relevant for the ongoing work under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to prepare for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. In contrast to previous Adaptation Gap Reports, the 2017 report focuses on issues relating to frameworks, comprising concepts, methodologies and data, rather than on assessing a particular dimension of the adaptation gap. Future Adaptation Gap Reports will return to assessments of specific adaptation gaps.
