Relevant suggestions with regard to Adaptation gaps include:

  • Organizations could benefit from the AC, including specific recognition of expertise within these organizations, so as to better engage with policymakers under the Convention on gaps
  • Organizations are and can continue in establishing sub-regional networks of champions on adaptation and climate induced risk reduction
  • Regional centres can draw on their regional networks to enhance local implementation capacity
  • Centres can work in consortium with national and international partners who have common goals to address natural resource management, climate change research and technology transfers
