Climate Action and Support Transparency Training (CASTT) is an official initiative of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) designed to provide capacity building and training to all levels of competencies within national climate governance and implementation. Under the broader CASTT banner, the Adaptation Academy program began in 2021, providing in-depth training courses for national climate focal points and ministerial representatives — particularly those from developing countries.

The training aims to enhance the ability of participants, especially from developing countries to conduct vulnerability and adaptation assessments, prepare and report, in timely manner, information resulting from such assessments and the implementation of national adaptation actions, including their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), for their national communications, biennial update reports, and biennial transparency reports under the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) arrangements of the Convention and the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement. The goal is to enable a systematic, generational stepchange in capacity to meet the ambitions of the Paris Agreement, its associated NDCs, and other climate commitments.
