IDDRI contributed to the flagship report of the Adaptation Working Group of the Independent Global Stocktake (iGST), published by the Copenhagen Climate Centre-United Nations Environment Programme. The report focuses on how to understand and measure “adequacy and effectiveness” in the UNFCCC Global Stocktake, and brings together 5 chapters to analyse both conceptual issues and assessment frameworks. In chapter 5, IDDRI's authors discuss the potential for the Global Adaptation Progress Tracker (GAP-Track) to input international policy discussions. They show that approaches based on expert judgment methods and that are developed outside of the UNFCCC arena could contribute with a depoliticized and cross-country perspectives that will be critical in the years and decades to complement other, more country-driven approaches and, ultimately, bring a fresh eye on what adequacy and effectiveness could mean in the context of the GST series.
