This Adaptation Briefing presents a compilation of selected knowledge products that have been funded by the GIZ “Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA)”. The SPA project strengthens several global initiatives and networks co-founded or financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) that enhance partner countries’ capacities to successfully implement their climate policies, reduce greenhouse gases, increase their adaptive capacities as well as communicate this transparently.
The Adaptation Briefings series has been launched under the SPA adaptation component. However, the publications presented in this issue follow a holistic and integrated view on NDC/NAP implementation and ambition raising. An inherent feature of holistic approaches to the climate crisis is that they cover a multitude of aspects. The different labels of each publication help to give orientation on its main focus.
