New TAAN section with extended information for science and think tanks

The Tool for Assessing Adaptation in the NDCs (TAAN) is an interactive knowledge platform that provides detailed information on adaptation in the (I)NDCs. In particular, it demonstrates objectives, priorities and vulnerabilities as well as country adaptation actions and measures as indicated in the (I)NDCs.

The new section labelled Data gives the user the possibility to access data concerning specific questions related to adaptation in the (I)NDCs. It is particularly designed for science and think tanks. A myriad of quantitative and qualitative analyses is accessible across a multitude of different indicators and can be further configured using different filters. The tool offers an opportunity to see the distribution of the selected criteria among regional groups and download the relevant data and graphics.

Besides this new function, the online tool comprises of two other sections, i.e. country information and quick facts. Here, sampled information was pre-selected for a quick overview of the adaptation content of (I)NDCs as well as country-specific data which can be downloaded in country factsheets.
