The 7th APAN Forum
Objectives of the 7th APAN Forum
The 7th APAN Forum aims to:
- Address the capacity building needs and priority issues in the Asia-Pacific region that would enable the scaling of tools and the means to resilience and to equip human systems and communities with the capacity to withstand and moderate adverse impacts arising from climate change;
- Act as a platform for discussions to accelerate action and facilitate the “how” part of adaptation knowledge and programmes, with actionable, scalable “next step” guidelines for communities, stakeholders, and governments;
- Report on the specific actions taken and progress made since the last APAN Forum on addressing the identified priority knowledge, policy and funding gaps;
- Formulate a set of recommendations on how to magnify current efforts on adaptation in the Asia-Pacific region and provide the basis for the Asia-Pacific region contributions to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow, United Kingdom and the 2021 United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP 15) in Kunming, China.
