UNDP Adaptation Learning Mechanism


Launched in 2007 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) along with other agency partners, the Adaptation Learning Mechanism (ALM) is a "collaborative knowledge-sharing platform" aimed at mapping good practices, providing information, sharing knowledge and building networks on climate change adaptation, with a focus on: adaptation practices; integration of climate change risks and adaptation into development policy, planning and operations; capacity building.

The ALM represents a global adaptation knowledge network seeking to provide stakeholders with a common platform for sharing and learning, with strong participation by Southern institutions. Each country profile contains national information on how individual countries are addressing climate change adaptation, including National Adaptation Programmes of Action, National Communications, climate change scenarios, impact assessments, and relevant strategies. The ALM is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Strategic Priority for Adaptation (SPA), with co-financing from SDC and IEPF.
