Our vision

Our vision is to establish adaptation as a global public good to advance towards a resilient world where all people are secure and can prosper.


Our mission

Our mission is to encourage a global approach to adaptation. The Paris Agreement is clear: adapting to the adverse effects of climate change is a global challenge faced by all. But current adaptation too often fails to address this challenge. By raising the visibility of transboundary climate risks, gathering evidence and analysis and building connections between stakeholders, we seek to drive action to strengthen international cooperation.

Harnessing current momentum, the Adaptation without Borders initiative will seize key opportunities to raise the profile of transboundary climate risks as part of a broader drive to scale up global ambition and multilateral cooperation on adaptation on a par with mitigation.
