Development and Climate Days at COP17 schedule
Full schedule for the two day side event.
This year’s D&C days focus on effective climate change adaptation planning. This is a response to the decision taken last year under the Cancun Adaptation Framework to invite all countries, and especially developing countries, to develop National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).
Decisions around how to operationalise this proposal will be negotiated at COP 17 in Durban. In recognition of these important discussions, D&C days at COP17 will address some of the lessons and challenges emerging from existing adaptation planning processes. The focus will be on improving “evidence-based adaption decision-making”, exploring issues of information needs and the challenges of robust evidence generation, through to information use and the politics of decision-making in practice.
