Following the United Nations Climate Change Summit on 23rd September 2019, convened by UN Secretary General António Guterres, the Global Commission on Adaptation has begun its Year of Action. Our Year of Action will:

  • Advance recommendations from Flagship Report and Action Tracks
  • Help accelerate adaptation around the world
  • Improve human well-being and result in more sustainable economic development and security

The GCA was launched in The Hague, the Netherlands, in October 2018 by former UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon with the mandate to encourage the development of measures to manage the effects of climate change through technology, planning and investment.
