Numerous knowledge resources have been generated under the NWP, in response to adaptation knowledge needs identified by the Parties and in collaboration with Parties, NWP partners and other expert organizations.
The NWP was established at COP 11 (December 2005, in Nairobi) 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. It has engaged Parties as well as a growing network of partner organizations, experts and other relevant organizations from all fields and world regions in sharing the latest information and knowledge, so as to scale-up adaptation action. For a snapshot of the main features of the NWP, see the NWP banner.  
Some of the collected information has also been synthesized under the NWP, as in the following documents that were published in April 2017:
•    Synthesis paper on human health and adaptation: understanding climate impacts on health and opportunities for action;
•    Synthesis report on adaptation planning, implementation and evaluation addressing ecosystems and areas such as water              resources;
•    Summary report on initiatives in the area of human settlements and adaptation.

The case studies, tools, methods and knowledge resources collected can be browsed through the advanced search page of the portal, which also gives access to the reports, synthesis documents and other publications generated under the NWP.


To support the NWP in bringing the latest information and knowledge to countries, all Parties and relevant organizations are invited to respond to the following calls for submissions: 

By 20 September 2017: Economic diversification >>>
