NEW: NAP Align – Aligning NAP with development and budget planning

NAP Align is an analysis tool designed to help countries align their national adaptation plan (NAP) processes with their overall national development goals, as well as budgets. It forms a supplement to the NAP technical guidelines developed by the Least Developed Countries Expert Group (UNFCCC) and provides further details of several steps outlined in the NAP technical guidelines. NAP Align highlights the importance of taking both the planning procedures and the budgeting framework of the country into consideration in the earliest stages of the NAP process.

NAP Align is targeted at various practitioners involved in the NAP process, including NAP multisectoral coordination committees, task forces and working groups. It assists them in analysing the individual country’s development planning and budgeting processes to find entry points for the alignment of NAP. It also describes the links between planning and budgeting cycles, particularly those regarded as central to adaptation planning.

The analysis comprises a set of questions which cover the following topics: development planning, donor coordination structures, financial and budget planning, financing climate change adaptation, medium term expenditure frameworks, and the budget cycle.
