The Science for Adaptation Policy Brief Series is an initiative of the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP). The briefs target researchers, policymakers, and practitioners. WASP Science for Adaptation Policy Briefs aim to encourage demand-driven knowledge creation and sharing, as well as engage stakeholders at the science-policy-action interface.
The first three briefs were launched at the UNFCCC Research Dialogue virtual event on 24 November 2020. The launch was organized by WASP in collaboration with the UNFCCC Secretariat, under the leadership of the current WASP Chair, UNFCCC Director of Adaptation, Youssef Nassef. The authors of the WASP Policy Briefs presented their key findings and provided evidence-based policy recommendations.
