Adaptation Futures Conference

October 5-8, 2021

Background

India due to its high reliance on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, water, and forestry for resources and livelihoods faces an urgent need for adapting to the risks posed by climate change. The country has been making significant efforts over the years to bring adaptation issues to the forefront in the evolving global climate regime. The Government of India has also formulated mechanisms to integrate adaptation action as part of the developmental process under the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change. India along with other developing nations, has been instrumental in putting forth a global goal of adaptation with an aim of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability under the Paris Climate Agreement. While adaptation requires local and national set of actions, there is a need for significant global cooperation in meeting the resource requirements of developing countries. In this context, Adaptation Futures 2020 will be an ideal opportunity to give visibility to the adaptation requirements of developing and generate significant dialogues around actionable solutions.
