The Adaptation Communication Drafting Assistance Tool (AdComm-DAT) offers a comprehensive step-by-step-guidance for countries to write their adaptation communication in an online and/or offline environment, tailored to the specific countries’ needs.
The AdComm-DAT provides practitioners and decision-makers with a structure along the proposed elements of an adaptation communication, contained in decision 9/CMA.1 of the Paris rulebook. The non-prescriptive template can be filled with information on existing national legal frameworks, impacts and risks, national adaptation priorities and support needs. In combination with communicating foreseen adaptation actions and plans, the tool also has a section on gender-responsive adaptation action, traditional knowledge, and knowledge of indigenous peoples.
We welcome you to visit www.adcomm-dat.org to register and start drafting an adaptation communication, and we look forward to your questions and feedback!
