  1. Japan made approximately 6.000.000 USD (equivalent to approximately 650 million yen) contribution to the Adaptation Fund (AF) on March 22.
  2. The AF is a multilateral climate fund which provides assistance for adaptation efforts of developing countries in addressing the adverse impacts of climate change.
  3. The Paris Agreement (PDF) Open a New Window, which entered into force in November 2016, stipulates the importance of support on adaptation and of taking into consideration of the needs of developing countries.
