@CCADAPT involved in UNEP 2017 Adaptation Gap Report
The United Nations Environment Program released the 2017 Adaptation Gap Report yesterday at COP23 today in Bonn. @ccadapt’s Prof. James Ford and Alex Lesnikowski were lead authors for chapter 3 focusing on the conceptual and methodological challenges and opportunities for adaptation tracking, and also had contributing author roles on other chapters. The report makes a strong case for the need for nations to start tracking adaptation and outlines opportunities for this. Moving forward, the TRAC3 team based at Leeds, Wageningen, and McGill aims to implement many of the recommendations in the report, creating a second generation global adaptation index.
