9.11.21 – Effective climate adaptation requires a paradigm shift that harnesses the full potential of science and innovation. Science needs to be more action-oriented and user-centred; action needs to be evidence-driven and fuelled by innovation; investment needs to be scaled up. We need Results-Oriented Adaptation Research (ROAR). To realise this systemic shift, climate adaptation researchers, practitioners, community-based organisations, and action and research funders from across the globe have formulated the Adaptation Research for Impact Principles as guiding tenets for all stakeholders engaged in climate adaptation, and co-developed the Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA), an innovative initiative that co-creates adaptation solutions with those on the frontline of risk and catalyses investment in support of results-oriented adaptation research.

The UNFCCC secretariat (UN Climate Change) is the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change. UNFCCC stands for United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Convention has near universal membership (197 Parties) and is the parent treaty of the 2015 Paris Agreement. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global average temperature rise this century as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The UNFCCC is also the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The ultimate objective of all three agreements under the UNFCCC is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system, in a time frame which allows ecosystems to adapt naturally and enables sustainable development.
