Climate change poses serious, wide-ranging risks to people, ecosystems, and every sector of the global economy. Efforts to significantly reduce greenhouse gases need to be complemented with a co-ordinated response to build resilience. Climate adaptation policies reduce the adverse consequences of climate impacts that are already underway and helps societies proactively prepare for the future.

Spotlight: Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation

-

 

In 2019, the OECD established the Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation (TFCCA), bringing together over 70 countries and organisations to promote concrete solutions and accelerate policy action on climate adaptation.

The Task Force provides policy makers with a platform to discuss and exchange experiences, best practices and the latest research on climate variability, adaptation and resilience. The TFCCA discussions provide valuable information to assess existing policy efforts and can inspire and support the development of ambitious adaptation policy agendas.
