The Paris Agreement emphasizes learning and ambition through initiatives like the Global Stocktake and the Global Goal on Adaptation. These should bolster national monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) systems that influence global objectives and align with national plans like NAPs and NDCs. However, learning is frequently sidelined in policy and MEL cycles. Active efforts are required to foster learning in national policies, and sharing notable examples is crucial.
This panel will bring together governments from Commonwealth countries—including Belize and Fiji—to examine what governments and other actors have learned from implementing climate adaptation in the context of NAP processes, the factors that drove or contributed to learning, and challenges in knowledge.
