A variety of stakeholders of developing countries have greatly contributed to mainstreaming adaptation into national development strategies/ plans and/or national adaptation planning (NAP) processes as well as implementation of relevant actions which cope with sustainable development and the impacts of climate change. Bilateral and Multilateral donors have provided cooperation to such process and implementation of actions in developing countries. There are a variety of different kinds of experiences of, best practices of, and lessons from each process and actions, however, these are not well known among relevant actors. Therefore, MOEJ will take an initiative to develop 5 case studies of NAP processes as well as 5 case studies of actions in different sectors, which are developed and implemented in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, MOEJ will develop a handbook, including case studies, lessons, based on studies, and process of main donors' assistance as well as organize a workshop to share these case studies and others among stakeholders.

Adaptation to the climate change impacts is a knowledge intensive undertaking.  While much knowledge exists for adaptation, it is often fragmented and not always accessible by those who need it.  The Global Adaptation Network (GAN) of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) is at the forefront in addressing these issues, working with the four existing regional networks (AAKNet, APAN, REGATTA, and WARN-CC).  GAN aims to catalyze adaptation action through intra-regional and cross regional knowledge exchange.   

At the COP21 in Paris, GAN will be strategically hosting a side event at the Japan Pavilion, on on Friday 4th Dec 2015,at 10.00 AM to 11.30 AM.  GAN will be conducting a discussion on the strides it has made in improving adaptation knowledge exchanges, the challenges faced, and the opportunities to achieving adaptation knowledge sharing and exchanges globally, cross-regionally and intra-regionally.
