The Nairobi work programme (NWP) was established at
COP11 (December 2005), through decision
2/CP.11, as a mechanism under the Convention to
facilitate and catalyze the development and dissemination
of information and knowledge that would inform and support
adaptation policies and practices. Its implementation has
been coordinated by the SBSTA, under the guidance of the
Chair of the SBSTA and with assistance from the
secretariat, and with contributions from Parties and other
adaptation stakeholders. Through its diverse range of
modalities, the Nairobi work programme provides unique
opportunities for linking relevant institutions, processes,
resources and expertise outside the Convention to respond
to adaptation knowledge needs arising from the
implementation of the various workstreams under the
Convention and identified by Parties.
At the upcoming 43rd session of the SBSTA, Parties will consider progress made in implementation of the activities under the NWP and will consider following documents made available for the session:
