NEW: National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process country-level training

The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process country-level training has been developed jointly by GIZ, the NAP GSP, UNDP, UNITAR and UNEP. It is supposed to assist multiple sectors at the country-level and constitutes the basis for a country upon which to strategize, steer and manage its NAP process. The overall aim of the training is to build capacities for the integration of a variety of sectors into the NAP process as well as to include adaptation to climate change into a country’s political- and budget planning.

Thus, the participants of the training work towards a common understanding of what NAP means for their country, which indicates that the training is tailored to the requirements of the group of participants and the country context. 

For further and more detailed information on how the training is conducted in particular, please visit the NAP country-level training section in our knowledge base.
