Seven priorities for an inclusive Global Goal on Adaptation
With the establishment of the Glasgow–Sharm El Sheik work programme (GlaSS) at the 26th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP26), discussions on how to operationalise the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA) have shifted into high gear. To be effective, the GlaSS needs to hear and integrate diverse voices, and civil society organisations (CSOs) can help ensure decisions and steps taken represent the whole of society. But GGA negotiations and processes to date have focused on Parties-only activities and the role of CSOs remains unclear. Ahead of the next workshops under the GlaSS, this briefing presents seven priorities to help policymakers and civil society actors work together as valuable stakeholders in the process to agree the GGA at local, national and global levels.
