The global goal on adaptation (GGA) was established in the Paris Agreement in 2015 in response to calls from developing countries to scale up action on adaptation. Many Parties expected work arising from the Paris Agreement to help operationalise the GGA, but progress was slow until COP26 in 2021, when the Glasgow- Sharm el-Sheik work programme (GlaSS) on the GGA was established.

This paper describes what happened in the intervening years and proposes key questions for Parties to reflect on when engaging in the GlaSS to enhance adaptation action at the regional, national, sub-national and local levels.
