The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Adaptation Gap Report (AGR) series provides an annual science-based assessment of the global progress and gaps on adaptation planning, financing, and implementation. UNEP has produced the AGR every year since 2014 in response to a request from UNFCCC Parties for a global assessment of adaptation that could support UNFCCC discussions on adaptation. While it remains an independent assessment, the objective of the AGR is closely aligned with that of the UNFCCC Global Stocktake. The AGR is co-produced by UNEP, the UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre (UNEP-CCC) and the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP). Further information on the AGR series is available at www.unep.org/resources/adaptation-gap-report.
Call for inputs
For the AGR 2023, a more detailed review and synthesis is being undertaken on the adaptation finance gap. This will draw on updated estimates of the costs of adaptation in the academic and grey literature, as well as country submissions to the UNFCCC. We are particularly interested in capturing any high quality or peer reviewed studies from the grey literature from Parties and non-Party stakeholders, including observer organizations, financial institutions, academia, civil society and the private sector.
How to submit your response
Parties and non-Party stakeholders, including observer organizations, financial institutions, academia, civil society and the private sector interested in submitting information and data are requested to follow the instructions provided in the document available here.
