The World Adaptation Science Programme is a joint initiative between UN Environment and the World Meteorological Organization. The secretariat is hosted by UN Environment in Nairobi.
With the coming into force of the Paris Agreement, the adaptation landscape has changed. Consequently, the World Adaptation Science Programme is being reshaped to better meet new demands and target its services to provide value added input to key international policy processes.
A scoping meeting was held in Geneva in September 2017 to chart out the future of the programme and discuss how it can act as a catalyst in the delivery of highly demanded scientific information to Parties to the UN Climate Change Convention, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other recipients of climate services.
In 2013, the Programme became a component of the World Climate Programme and works closely with other research programmes such as the Global Framework on Climate Services.
