The objective of the Nairobi Work Programme is to assist all parties, in particular developing countries, including the least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS), to improve their understanding and assessment of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation, and to make informed decisions on practical adaptation actions and measures to respond to climate change on a sound scientific, technical and socio-economic basis, taking into account current and future climate change and variability.

As part of the activities under the Nairobi Work Programme, the COP requested the secretariat to organize a technical workshop on ecosystem-based approaches for adaptation to climate change, before the thirty-eighth session of the SBSTA, taking into account the role of ecosystems, including forests, in adaptation; vulnerability and impacts in ecosystems; the implementation and benefits of ecosystem based approaches for adaptation; and lessons learned, including through the three Rio Conventions. The workshop will be informed by the information contained in Annex I to the report of the SBSTA on its thirty-fourth session and subsequent views of parties, and will include indigenous and traditional knowledge and practices for adaptation and gender-sensitive tools and approaches as cross-cutting issues.
