Adaptation to climate change

Fifth meeting of the OECD Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation

28 - 29 Nov 2022
Hybrid Meeting

Background and objectives of the meeting

The OECD Task Force on Climate Change Adaptation (TFCCA) meets as part of the OECD Working Parties on Climate, Investment & Development (WPCID) as well as on Biodiversity, Water & Ecosystems (WPBWE). Both are part of the OECD Environment Policy Committee. The objective of the TFCCA is to advance countries’ policy agendas in support of strengthening their resilience to climate change and climate variability and to promote concrete solutions and develop policy guidance on climate change adaptation. 

The TFCCA aims to: 
a. Provide a platform for a focused discussion and advice on relevant outputs under the OECD’s Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) on resilience and adaptation to climate change and climate variability;
b. Provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge on the latest research and country practices on adapting to a changing climate;
c. Identify and advise on the future development of data and indicators that can assist countries in assessing, benchmarking and monitoring progress in implementing national adaptation policies.
After a long Covid-19 related hiatus this TFCCA meeting was held in-person again, with virtual participation available. At this meeting, participants had the opportunity to hear about the interim outcomes of the key ongoing adaptation projects, hear about delegates’ recent adaptation developments as well as discuss the priorities of work going forward in 2023-2024. The meeting benefited once again from inspiring keynote and opening remarks.
