A global policy platform for climate change adaptation

This platform makes information about climate change adaptation planning across the globe openly available, easy and interesting to explore. This initial version showcases adaptation plans in the climate pledges of all signatories of the Paris Agreement of UNFCCC. The platform highlights the prominence of Nature-based Solutions to climate change hazards and links pledges to the science behind Nature-based Solutions. The goal is to facilitate the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement and provide a baseline against which changes in ambition for Nature-based Solutions to climate change adaptation can be monitored and increased. The platform will grow with more policies and functionalities. Please let us know how we can make it most useful to you.

Our Analysis

To get an overview of the how the world’s nations are planning to adapt to the impacts of climate change and to determine the role of Nature-based Solutions, we conducted an in-depth textual analysis of the adaptation components of all 167 NDCs submitted by Parties to the Paris Agreement.  Our analysis is limited to current NDCs; other national plans (e.g. National Adaptation Plans or National Adaptation Plans of Action) will be added in due course.  You can download our full methodology here. Meanwhile, our draft guidelines for revision of the NDCs (focused on Nature-based Solutions), can be downloaded.
