Recalling, Recognizing & Reaffirming: The Global Goal on Adaptation

10 November 2017

ECO would like to remind Parties that no substantive work has been undertaken to unpack its elements or operationalize the GGA since the adoption of the Paris Agreement. 

To state the obvious, we not only have to urgently strengthen mitigation ambition but also scale up adaptation actions to minimize loss and damage. The report is a useful input for the negotiators to explore key opportunities and challenges associated with assessing progress on adaptation at the global level. Parties must consider the report and start discussions on assessing collective progress and operationalizing the GGA. This will help synthesize national adaptation planning and reporting.
