The WASP Secretariat is honored to announce the establishment of WASP Working Groups which will focus on three topics, as follows:
- WASP Working Group I on Adaptation Effectiveness, including Finance (WG-I-EFF)
- WASP Working Group II on Loss & Damage (WG-II-L&D)
- WASP Working Group III on the Global Goal on Adaptation (WG-I-GGA)
These three Working Groups (WGs) are established with the aim to develop so-called Core Projects on their respective themes of interest. The WGs will focus on developing and delivering knowledge products and services through the proposed Core Projects. Main focus will be on selected climate adaptation themes with the aim to advance the scientific foundation for climate adaptation policy and decision-making. This will be done through identifying and bridging existing and potential climate adaptation knowledge gaps, especially in developing countries, as well as in support of the UNFCCC and IPCC processes and their constituencies (member states and stakeholders).
