Guidance Note on Financing National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes

Financing is needed throughout the entire National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process – from its initiation to the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of prioritized adaptation actions. Many countries need assistiance with determining how to secure the financing for their NAP processes. Therefore, the NAP Global Network has recently published a new Guidance Note, increasing the likelohood of securing finance from different sources for countries and their governments. Entitled ‘Financing National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes: Contributing to the achievement of nationally determined contribution (NDC) adaptation goals’, the publication:

  • Presents a range of potential financing sources (domestic and international, public and private)
  • Identifies which sources are appropriate for different phases within the NAP process
  • Suggests practical steps for countries to take throughout the NAP process
  • Provides a number of concise case studies from a diverse group of countries

The guidance note was commissioned and co-authored by GIZ’s Climate Policy Support Program (co-authors Michael Brossmann & Sascha Oppowa) in cooperation with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). The publication is available in English and will become available in French and Spanish by November 2017.
