CoP 28: Adaptation Targets



What are the adaptation targets set to be achieved by 2030?

1. Enhance Resilience: Improve the ability of communities, especially those in high-vulnerability areas, to adapt to climate change impacts. 2. Reduce Vulnerabilities: Lower risks associated with climate extremes and disasters. 3. Poverty and Livelihoods: Substantially reduce poverty and protect livelihoods in the face of climate risks. 4. Sustainable Infrastructure: Ensure new infrastructures are resilient to climate impacts. 5. Climate-Related Hazards: Develop adaptive strategies to minimize the impacts of climate-related risks. 6. Water Access: Ensure universal access to safe and affordable potable water despite climate stresses. 7. Community Empowerment: Significantly scale community-led climate resilience actions across all levels.

Why are these targets important?

The adaptation targets are crucial for preparing global societies to withstand and recover from the adverse effects of climate change. They aim to safeguard not only the environment but also the socio-economic stability of communities worldwide.

How will these targets be achieved?

Achieving these targets will require international cooperation, robust financial strategies, and the implementation of sustainable policies and practices that address both current and future climate risks.

Who is responsible for meeting these targets?

Responsibility lies with individual nations and the international community as a whole, including public and private entities, to work collaboratively towards these common goals.

What is the role of developed countries in this initiative?

Developed countries are expected to provide support to less developed nations through financial assistance, technology transfer, and capacity-building measures to help them meet their adaptation targets.

What challenges are associated with these targets?

Challenges include ensuring sufficient funding, addressing the complexities of climate impacts across diverse regions, and managing the coordination of efforts across different levels of government and society.
