Expected Results of the Workshop:

  • Strengthened knowledge of workshop participants regarding best practices in assessing climate change adaptation options;
  • Enhanced understanding of workshop participants about their own country’s climate change adaptation priorities towards developing a national climate adaptation strategy and action planning;
  • A country-by-country first vision on the implementation of prioritised climate change adaptation options.
