Examination of cooperative efforts to three global agendas on adaptation: Paris Agreement, SDGs and Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
- Overseas Environmental Cooperation Center, Japan (OECC)
We witnessed the three global agendas, namely the Paris Agreement, the SDGs, and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, were adopted in 2015. Responding to the global attentions and needs, the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) together with the UNFCCC hold the Expert meetings which focused on linkages among the three global agenda in July 2018. In addition, MOEJ recognizes adaptation as an important initiative of climate change, provides information through "Asia-Pacific Adaptive Information Platform (AP-PLAT)", delivers bilateral support in line with the needs of each country.
This event elaborates the discussion carried out in the Expert meetings and it will further ask how the three global agendas can effectively integrate into national actions, local communities and the private sector.
