Adaptation gap report 2018

Source(s):  United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

The 2018 Adaptation gap report has two parts. First, it provides an overview of the status and trends of the adaptation gap in terms of vulnerability to climate change, adaptation costs and finance, and countries’ adaptation commitments and actions. Second, the report undertakes an in-depth assessment of the adaptation gap in health.

The report underscores that adaptation to climate change is strongly linked to sustainable development. If done right, adaptation actions can grow our economies, create jobs and lead to better health outcomes. Given these multiple benefits, adaptation is an integral part of good, climate resilient development. In the health sector, many of the most important actions to bridge the adaptation gap are related to improving basic sanitation, improving access to safe water, and reducing food and nutrition insecurity. The recommendations in this report aim to make this a reality.
