Summary The new GCCA+ flagship programme takes stock of the changed development challenges ahead and redirects its priorities, governance structure and operational support to address the actual and foreseen climate change needs in achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (in particular goal 13 related to climate change) and the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris COP21 outcomes.
The new programme keeps its focus on two pillars: policy dialogue and technical and financial support to the implementation of national climate change adaptation and mitigation policies, but with a stronger emphasis on the binding role of knowledge management and communication.
