Adaptation Fund Board Submits Views on a Review of its Interim Arrangements

13 May 2012: The UNFCCC Secretariat has released the views of the Adaptation Fund Board on the report of the review of the interim arrangements of the Adaptation Fund (FCCC/SBI/2012/INF.2).

Decision 7/CMP.7, paragraph 1, adopted in Durban, South Africa, in 2011, requested the Adaptation Fund Board to submit to the UNFCCC Secretariat, as soon as possible after its first meeting in March 2012, its views on the report on the review of the interim arrangements of the Adaptation Fund for inclusion in an information document.

The Adaptation Fund Board submission indicates that it decided to establish a working group to consider the performance review of the secretariat and trustee and report to the Board at its 17th meeting. It further notes that the working group continued working and circulated its preliminary conclusions to the Board intersessionally. Further inputs will be provided to the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) upon consideration by the Board of the final conclusions by the working group.

These views will be considered by SBI at its 36th session, to be held in Bonn, Germany, from 14–25 May 2012. [Publication: Views of the Adaptation Fund Board on the Report of the Review of the Interim Arrangements of the Adaptation Fund]
