Our Alliances & Networks

Partnerships are Key to PlanAdapt’s Approach – We Work With Others, To Achieve Ambitious Goals!

PlanAdapt recognises scope and scale of the global challenges we face today require collaboration across sectors and institutions bringing together actors from science, policy and practice.

To increase the effectiveness of PlanAdapt’s work, we proudly work with and through the following networks and initiatives:

Friends of Ecosystem-based Adaptation

Friends of EbA (FEBA) is an informal network of organizations with an interest in promoting collaboration and knowledge sharing on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) through joint events and initiatives, as well as the development of position papers and technical documents on EbA. PlanAdapt chairs the FEBA Working Group on Urban EbA (learn more).

UNFCCC Nairobi Work Programme

The UNFCCC knowledge-to-action hub for climate resilience and adaptation. The Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability, and adaptation to climate change (NWP) was established to facilitate and catalyse the development and dissemination of information and knowledge that would inform and support adaptation policies and practices, with a focus on developing countries. PlanAdapt is an official NWP Partner Organisation.

UNFCCC Paris Committee on Capacity-building (PCCB) Network 

The PCCB Network is envisioned as a voluntary association of interested stakeholders engaged in climate-related capacity-building who can share information on good practices of their work, contribute to the work of PCCB in fulfilling its mandate, and seek to connect with their peers across sectors and regions. The goal of the PCCB Network is to foster synergies and enhance coherence and coordination in capacity-building efforts for climate action.  PlanAdapt is an official member since July 2020.

NATURA – The Nature-based Solutions for Urban Resilience in the Anthropocene  

The Nature-based Solutions for Urban Resilience in the Anthropocene (NATURA) project links networks in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North and Latin America, and globally to enhance connectivity among the world’s scholars and practitioners and improve the prospects for global urban sustainability. NATURA exchanges knowledge, shares data, and enhances communication among research disciplines and across the research-practice divide to advance urban resilience in face of growing threats of extreme weather events. PlanAdapt is an official member since September 2020.

Geneva 2030 Ecosystem

The objective of the Geneva 2030 Ecosystem is to mobilize the capacity, skills, experience, ideas and motivation of Geneva-based actors towards realizing the 2030 Agenda. This will be done by configuring their collective knowledge in new ways to foster partnerships, share lessons-learned and support the creation of solutions to cross-cutting challenges and barriers to successful implementation of the SDGs.
