1 (The Global Programme of Research On Climate Change Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation) Adaptation Knowledge Day V: Climate Change Adaptation Gaps BONN, 9 June 2014 Dr. Saleemul Huq Co-chair PROVIA Scientific Steering Committee 1

2 What is PROVIA? PROVIA is a global initiative which aims to provide direction, coherence, and capacity- building at the international level for research on vulnerability, impacts and adaptation (VIA) Parent organizations are UN ‘Joint Programme’ of UNEP and WMO; Secretariat at UNEP; counterpart to WCRP PROVIA responds to the urgent call by the scientific community for a more cohesive and coordinated approach, and the critical need to harmonize, mobilize, and communicate the growing knowledge-base on VIA 2

3 PROVIA compliments to Adaptation Knowledge: Advance policy-relevant research on VIA Coordinate and facilitate dissemination of VIA knowledge Identifying VIA Research Gaps Capacity building: PROVIA Young Scientist Forum PROVIA OBJECTIVES AIMS TO ADDRESS ADAPTATION KNOWLEDG 3

4 PROVIA First Phase Activities ( ) 1.Develop a prioritised international agenda for research on VIA, and communicate to governments and international agencies 2.Provide VIA information to the UNFCCC and similar bodies, especially information that will enable more effective adaptation 3.A biennial conference to improve the coherence of VIA research 4.Improve the robustness of VIA assessments and build capacity, by revising guidance on research methods 4

5 PROVIA promotes climate change adaptation knowledge through its activities: A report on research gaps in VIA to advance policy-relevant research on VIA PROVIA Guidance: SIDS online training supports integrate adaptation to climate change in development planning. Good practices and lessons learned PROVIA ACTIVITIES 5

6 Experts Identify VIA Research Priorities –Gap analysis based on VIA literature review produced an initial list of 172 topics –Based on Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) feedback, a 54- topic electronic consultation of the expert community (~150 experts globally) was undertaken Policymakers Identify VIA Research Priorities –International Policymaker meetings (~60 participants) with straw poll held in Washington D.C., London, and Bonn (LDCs) Policymaker and Expert Pathways Integrated –Additional feedback provided by the expert and policymaker communities –Outcome is the 33-topic Global Research Priorities Document Activity 1 Research Priorities Process 6
