The UNFCCC’s website states that « The RCWs include series of events that provide space for a grassroots exchange of knowledge and best practices across the region on: Implementation of  Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Global Climate Action (GCA).

Every year the RCWs are held in the following regions: Africa, Latin-America and Caribbean, and Asia-Pacific. As of 2020, the RCWs will also be convened in the Middle East and Northern African region.  »
