OUR CONVENING COUNTRIES
The leaders of our convening countries recognize that adaptation is a smart investment that will pay high returns. They also know that failures of adaptation in some countries will have negative spill-over effects on others. They are therefore committed to work together to advance the work of the Commission and catalyze a global adaptation movement.
United Arab Emirates
The Commission was launched with the support of 17 convening countries including China, Canada and the UK and low-lying countries vulnerable to climate change including Bangladesh and the Marshall Islands. It also included 28 Commissioners representing all sectors of the globe and all sectors of development and industry.
The Netherlands initiated the Global Commission on Adaptation to share its knowledge on how it has managed to adopt innovative water management solutions as sea levels rise.
