Enhancing international cooperation on climate adaptation is an important part of the enhanced and comprehensive adaptation actions under Paris Agreement. Based on the current situation of global adaptation to climate change, this paper systematically reviews the international cooperation mechanisms of major developed countries and groups and the key practices of international cooperation on global climate adaptation. Considering intergovernmental communication mechanism like high-level dialogue, bilateral and multilateral cooperation, international organization cooperation and South-South cooperation with developing countries in recent years, it is concluded that the lack of funding and cooperation channels, the urgent need to deepen the international cooperation program, and the challenge of “green economy” in post epidemic Era are main problems for China to carry out international cooperation on climate change adaptation. In the post-Pairs times, in order to play an important role as a participant, a contributor and a leader in the construction of global ecological civilization, and to make China’s international cooperation on climate adaptation go further, China will truly focus on deeply participating in the construction of global climate adaptation governance mechanism, deepening cooperation with Global Center on Adaptation, exploring good practices of international cooperation on climate adaptation and developing international cooperation at city level.

Key words: Paris Agreement, Climate adaptation, International cooperation, Global Center on Adaptation
