The first Global Adaptation Network (GAN) Forum is being held in Panama City on 6-7 March to bring together participants from various Adaptation Knowledge Networks,
government officials and experts working in the field of Climate Change Adaptation. The Forum seeks to provide an opportunity for dialogue and learning between adaptation actors and networks inter-regionally and globally.
On the first day of the event, Anne Olhoff from UNEP DTU Partnership will present UNEP’s Global Adaptation Gap Report that was launched at COP 20 in Lima in December 2014. The session will discuss what are the different adaptation gaps, what challenges do the gaps pose, and what role can the GAN audience play in filling the gaps?
Organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the two day event aims to meet both strategic and practical objectives.
The Adaptation Forum, organized by the UNFCCC Adaptation Committee, will be held in conjunction with the GAN Forum, with a focus on institutional arrangements, building partnerships and strengthening regional networks.
