Financing National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes: Contributing to the achievement of nationally determined contribution (NDC) adaptation goals

Publishing date: August 2017

The guidance note on financing NAP processes was developed for government officials and technical experts to facilitate access to domestic, international, public and private financing. Financing is needed throughout the entire NAP (or NDC implementation) process to enable its potential to be reached - from its initiation to the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of prioritized adaptation actions. The amount of financing needed by countries will vary depending on their circumstances, but is expected to be significant. This guidance note aims at assisting countries with the development of strategies for securing necessary funds. Specifically, the guide has the following objectives:

  • Provide a clear understanding of the NAP process from a financing perspective.
  • Present the range of potential sources of finance and identify which sources may be more appropriate for different phases of the NAP process.
Suggest practical steps that countries might take throughout the NAP process to increase their likelihood of securing finance from different sources.
