About GAN

The overall objective of the Global Adaptation Network (GAN) is to help build climate resilience of vulnerable communities, ecosystems and economies through the mobilization of knowledge for adaptation.

The physical impacts of climate change and human vulnerability affect different parts of the world in numerous different, yet interlinked, ways. In conjunction with the growing awareness about the impacts of climate change, a growing number of agencies, organizations, research institutes, and political bodies are grappling with understanding patterns of vulnerability and how to adapt. 
While much knowledge exists for successful action on adaptation, it is often fragmented and not always accessible to various stakeholders. The mobilization and sharing of knowledge and experiences is therefore critical to informing adaptation decision-making, planning and practice. The Global Adaptation Network (GAN) has been developed to meet these needs and gaps.

he development of the GAN involved a broad UNEP-facilitated consultative process that ran from late 2008 to mid-2010, including an international consultation meeting and four regional consultations. The key needs identified at the global level through this process include the mobilization of existing information and knowledge, provision of targeted and packaged support and advisory services, building capacity for the uptake of knowledge, and linking the supply of expertise and knowledge with the demands. These needs have also been frequently expressed through the UNFCCC processes.
