FAO-Adapt is an organization-wide framework programme launched in June 2011. It provides general guidance and introduces principles as well as priority themes, actions and implementation support to FAO’s multi-disciplinary activities for climate change adaptation.
Improving the efficiency and coordination of adaptation efforts
FAO-Adapt provides an umbrella to FAO’s adaptation activities, including short-term and long-term adaptation measures. FAO-Adapt aims to enhance coordination, efficiency and visibility of FAO’s adaptation work.
FAO’s Interdepartmental Working Group on Climate Change and its subgroup on adaptation facilitate the implementation process of FAO-Adapt. Technical units in FAO Headquarters and decentralized offices lead the delivery of outputs and actions consolidated under the priority themes defined in the Framework Programme.
