Welcome to the latest update from the Adaptation Without Borders global partnership.
Last month, the Bonn Climate Change Conference, the 56th session of the UNFCCC subsidiary bodies, saw transboundary climate risk rise up the political agenda. Following our submission on the Global Goal on Adaptation earlier in the year, we made a number of interventions in the GLaSS (Glasgow–Sharm El-Sheikh work programme on the Global Goal on Adaptation) technical workshops and Global Stocktake roundtables on adaptation. The importance of accounting for transboundary climate risk, and strengthening international cooperation on adaptation, were cited by a number of Groups and Parties, including (among others) AILAC, AOSIS and YOUNGO, as well as Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Colombia, the European Union, the Maldives and the United States.
