2. Alignment for ambitious adaptation action

Date: Wednesday 31st May
Time: 14:00-16:00
Room: Pine

The main objective of this breakout session is to enhance understanding of how governments, UN agencies, donors and civil society can overcome the financial, governance and inclusion-related barriers to increased ambition in the implementation of NDC adaptation priorities by leveraging the adaptation planning (NAP) work and vice versa. A secondary objective of the session is to provide a forum for a diverse range of stakeholders to discuss and showcase innovative approaches to scaling up adaptation ambition.

The breakout session will mix an introduction and framing presentations, an energizer, and a world café-style interactive session that will ensure that each participant engages with a diverse range of perspectives on the challenges, needs and opportunities relating to increasing adaptation ambition.
