New Section on National Adaptation Planning (NAPs)

Successful adaptation needs long-term planning. AdaptationCommunity.net now devotes a new section to the National Adaptation Planning (NAP) process which was devised at the COP16 in Cancún. NAPs are meant to complement short-term adaptation projects by building long-term adaptive capacity, and can be a powerful tool to guide the process of adaptation.

AdaptationCommunity’s section on NAPs provides an overview of the UNFCCC’s NAP support structure and links to more detailed planning guidelines. It also outlines the different tools and materials offered by GIZ that help adaptation planners define and implement strategic adaptation needs and goals.
