Adaptation: under the frameworks of the CBD, the UNCCD and the UNFCCC

Source(s):  Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)
United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD)
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

IPCC, in its fourth assessment report, re-emphasized the need for adaptation to address the impacts of climate change on lives and livelihoods across all sectors. The more intense and far-reaching the impacts of climate change are, the greater the loss of plant and animal species will be, and the greater the deterioration of drylands around the world. A Joint Liaison Group (JLG) between the secretariats of the CBD, UNCCD and UNFCCC was established in 2001 with the aim of enhancing coordination between the three Conventions, including cooperation on adaptation. This information note is the first step to enhancing collaboration towards linking climate change adaptation, combating desertification, and biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
