A new opinion piece "Documenting the state of adaptation for the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement" has been published in WIREs Climate Change. The paper, by Emma Tompkins, Katharine Vincent, Robert Nicholls and Natalie Suckall, proposes a stocktaking approach to document the spectrum and prevalence of adaptation over large scales, as mandated by the global stocktake of the Paris Agreement. The stocktaking approach is based on a method used to develop inventories of adaptation in four deltas within the Deltas, Vulnerability and Climate Change: Migration and Adaptation (DECCMA) project. It involves four steps: (a) obtaining consensus on the objectives of adaptation; (b) agreeing the sources of evidence; (c) agreeing the search method; and (d) categorizing the adaptations.
