– Good technical progress was made to mobilise finance for climate adaptation, additional US$81 were announced and the Adaptation Fund recognized as an instrument under the Paris Agreement.

– Enhancing accessibility and strategies for scaling up climate finance to meet the US$100 billion target were urged together with capacity building as well as enhancement of technology development and transfer.
