Considered Asia-Pacific’s largest and longest-standing gathering of adaptation practitioners to share information, knowledge and best practices in adaptation and resilience-building, the APAN Forum is the biennial flagship event of the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network Secretariat, hosted within the UNEP Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
The 8th APAN Forum will be hosted by the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Korea, the Korea Environment Institute – Korea Adaptation Center for Climate Change and Incheon Metropolitan City as part of the Korea Global Adaptation Week (KGAW) 2023.
Representatives from governments, financing institutions, academia and research, international organisations, UN agencies, civil society organisations, youth organisations and the private sector, among others, will participate in the 8th APAN Forum to work together to build and strengthen partnerships across sectors for adaptation action. The Forum will also provide a space to reflect on the Cop27 outcomes and highlight regional lessons learnt, needs and challenges to serve as inputs into Cop28 discussions to be held at Expo City Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2023.
Further announcements will be made in the coming months. In the meantime, kindly mark your calendars.
