Adaptation is an important part of negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Paris Agreement. The 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24), held in December 2018, reached consensus on the follow-up implementation of adaptation issues, bringing new opportunities and challenges to global climate governance. In the future global climate governance, how to use the new achievements to promote the steady development of domestic adaptation and actively play China’s role is an important issue that needs to be considered urgently under the new situation. Based on this, this paper combed the focus of COP24 adaptation issues, the standpoints of groups and Parties, looked forward to the main arrangements of adaptation issues in the period of 2019-2025, and put forward some suggestions for future adaptation work in China, including: (1) analyzing the linkages between international information reporting system and domestic information, and sorting out and highlighting domestic information, in order to construct high-quality reports; (2) building a cross-sectoral and cross-regional collaboration mechanism, strengthening information collection and improvement, effectively improving the functions of data and information statistics; (3) strengthening the role of scientific research on climate change adaptation technologies, norms and standards, so as to provide incorporate relevant technical requirements and improve policy provisions in formulating policies and regulations as a kind of operational services.
