Facilitating Peer Learning with Adaptation Policy-Makers
The guide is based on approaches piloted by the NAP Global Network through Targeted Topic Forums (TTFs)—multi-day events that explored key themes related to the NAP process, including sectoral integration, financing and gender.
Attended by government representatives from 23 countries, these international learning and knowledge-sharing events successfully shared technical know-how, facilitated peer-to-peer exchange and inspired advances in countries’ NAP processes around the world.
A common reflection from TTF participants after these events was how helpful they would find it to use these same facilitation approaches with their own departments or ministries. In response to these requests, we have developed this guide to share the approaches used during the TTFs so they can be applied in other domestic and international planning processes.
This guide is for people that want to hold inclusive, participatory events in which different stakeholders come together to collectively generate ideas and identify actions they will take to make progress toward adaptation. It will help move away from presentation-heavy meetings and invite people to think and plan differently for their next event.

Columna de Anne Hammill: El liderazgo de Chile en los debates globales sobre la adaptación al cambio climático (in Spanish)
Para hacer frente a sequías cada vez más intensas, los agricultores chilenos han adoptado un enfoque innovador: la captación de niebla. En colaboración con ingenieros, las comunidades han utilizado redes especialmente diseñadas para capturar la niebla a su paso por las montañas, y esta tecnología de bajo costo ha resultado eficaz para suministrar agua a los cultivos y el ganado. Pero este método creativo es sólo una parte de una historia más compleja sobre la gestión del uso del agua. Este tipo de acción comunitaria necesita el apoyo de los esfuerzos nacionales como leyes y reglamentos para conservar el agua.
