Call for Contributions | Initiatives Using Local, Indigenous And Traditional Knowledge and Practices for Adaptation

The Nairobi work programme team at the UNFCCC secretariat invites you to contribute to the secretariat’s data compilation effort on the use of local, indigenous and traditional knowledge and practices for adaptation.

At its forty-first session, the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) requested the secretariat under the guidance of the Chair of the SBSTA, in collaboration with the Adaptation Committee and the Least Developed Countries Expert Group, and with contributions from relevant Nairobi work programme partner organizations, to make publicly available a compilation of good practices and tools and available data collection initiatives for the use of local, indigenous and traditional knowledge and practices for adaptation, for consideration at SBSTA 44.

In light of this call for contributions on the part of Nairobi work programme partner organizations, we welcome all information you would like to share with the secretariat regarding good practices, tools and data collection initiatives referring to the use of local, indigenous and traditional knowledge and practices for adaptation. If possible it is requested that information be submitted both in English and in Spanish or French so as to allow for broader outreach and dissemination of knowledge.

All communicated information will be compiled in a worldwide database that will be made available online, both on the UNFCCC website and on the upcoming Adaptation Knowledge Portal, which is a knowledge-sharing initiative undertaken under the Nairobi work programme.

You are kindly requested to communicate the above information using the attached templates for submission, at the latest by April 11 so that it can be discussed at SBSTA 44 in May 2016.

We thank you in advance for sending the filled-out templates to nwp@unfccc.int.

This effort is undertaken under the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. For more information on the work programme, including on the possibility to join as a partner organization, please see: <https://www3.unfccc.int/pls/apex/f?p=333:1:4117603190186568>
