Under the Paris Agreement and Katowice decisions, adaptation components of NDCs are considered part of adaptation communications. Decision 9/CMA.1 (guidance for adaptation communications) provides the guidance for adaptation components of NDCs. 9/CMA.1 outlines the purpose, process, linkages, and possible sources of support relevant to adaptation communications, including as adaptation component of NDCs. It also identifies nine types of information to include and encourages inclusion of forward-looking information. In context of the multiple arrangements for adaptation information, to reduce duplications and additional burdens, Parties can build their adaptation communication on the information generated during the process to formulate and implement NAPs - consistent with the role the NAP as the planning instrument, and of the adaptation communication as a communication instrument. Biennial transparency reports can contain information on progress.
