The adoption of the Paris Agreement at the UN climate summit in Paris in 2015 was a landmark achievement. 195 countries endorsed an ambitious climate change agreement that includes a global goal on adaptation. More robust information on adaptation needs, costs and finance will be central to guide and inform the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement. To support the provision of such information, the 2016 Adaptation Finance Gap Report provides an assessment of adaptation needs and costs, the finance available to meet those needs, and the anticipated difference between these two figures – the adaptation finance gap. The report builds on the 2014 Adaptation Gap Report by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
