In 2007, the CEB adopted the Climate Change Actions Framework, a joint action‐oriented approach in line with the decisions of the UNFCCC Parties. The UN system supports Member States in implementing their commitments and in responding to the emerging challenges.

At COP17/CMP7, the UN system presented its ongoing work and practical solutions and tools at side events, exhibits and by sharing a joint package with the following thematic information.

Disaster Risk Reduction

Thus, climate analysis tools for assessing changes in severity, frequency, and occurrences of hydro‐meteorological hazards at seasonal, inter‐annual, decadal, and longer climate change time scales need to become available operationally and applied for risk assessment within the economic sectors to support decision‐making at various levels and time scales.

Technology Transfer

Achieving the 2°C climate target will require technological innovation and the rapid and widespread transfer of environmentally‐sound technologies for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and for adapting to the inevitable impacts of climate change.
