    Background

    The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is the focus of the political process to address Climate Change. The UNFCCC secretariat supports the Convention, its Kyoto Protocol and the historic Paris Agreement by a range of activities, including substantive and organizational support to meetings of the Parties and the implementation of commitments. It is a dynamic organization working in a politically challenging environment to help resolve one of the defining environmental issues of our time.

    The Adaptation programme of the UNFCCC secretariat supports the intergovernmental process. This process includes activities relating to national adaptation plans (NAPs), national adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs), the Nairobi work programme (NWP), the work programme on loss and damage, the Adaptation Committee (AC), research and systematic observation under the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), and support for the implementation of adaptation action under the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA). The Adaptation programme also engages Parties and stakeholders including national, regional, multilateral and international organizations, across public and private sectors, civil society and other relevant stakeholders. The programme addresses the process of reviewing the adequacy of the long-term global goal under the Convention and the global stocktake under the Paris Agreement and the consideration of various matters related to climate science.

    3) Supporting the communication and outreach work of the Adaptation Programme, including managing the twitter account of the Nairobi work programme;

    4) Assess and inform the Adaptation Programme of progress of climate action at the national and regional levels, so as to potentially better support stocktaking processes;
