Mitigation and Adaptation Synergies in the INDCs (NOAK)


This side event will present feasible funding criteria for mitigation and adaptation synergies, and discus the feasibility and barriers for the use and implementation of a financing design with potential for supporting mitigation and adaptation synergies in forestry, agriculture, energy sectors, and urban areas. The event takes place at the New Nordic Climate Solutions Pavilion - Section DEL2, Blue Zone, COP22.

Guiding questions for discussion:

   - How does your institution address mitigation and adaptation synergies?
   - Do you have any early findings or other cases about synergies and their financing?
   - Which challenges do you see in mitigation and adaptation synergies and their financing?
