Human settlements is a key thematic area of the Nairobi work programme, as mandated by the Subsidiary Body for Science and Technological Advice (SBSTA) in May 2018 and May 2016. The secretariat has collaborated with partners to deliver: 

Those different deliverables are part of the seven-step approach illustrated in the figure below, which aims at advancing resilience in cities, towns and villages through knowledge.  

What did the call for submissions and synthesis report capture ? 

The SBSTA invited Parties, NWP partner organizations and other relevant entities to submit information on recent activities and research on human settlements related, in particular, to assessing sensitivity and vulnerability to climate change, integrating both short-term and long-term climate considerations, the role of national governments in supporting adaptation at the local level, city-to-city partnerships on climate change, and cross-cutting issues and linkages related to the formulation and implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). The overarching aim of the request was to inform work on human settlements in adaptation planning and implementation.
