This private, invite-only event at the U.S. Department of State provided an overview of several Adaptation Partnership (AP) Workshops that have taken place around the world – from Bangkok to Costa Rica to Nepal. Established by the governments of the United States, Costa Rica, and Spain in 2010, the AP Workshops serve as a forum for policymakers and practitioners to share information and lessons learned from global climate change adaptation planning and implementation. The event covered topics addressed in the AP process such as agriculture, climate services, conflict, and marine protected areas. It began with a background on the establishment of and goals of AP Workshops, and concluded with a discussion of follow-on activities since the Workshops.
