Now available in Arabic: The Stocktaking for National Adaptation Planning (SNAP) Tool

The SNAP tool addresses decision-makers and technical experts from ministries as well as NGOs and other stakeholders. It provides guidance for developing a snapshot of the planning capacities that are currently available. Thus, it helps to identify the country’s point of departure for initiating the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process. When preparing for NDC implementation or even a future NDC iteration, a stocktake of existing capacities, ongoing activities and adaptation needs forms the basis for identifying strategic goals. The assessment is conducted through a one- or two-day workshop involving key stakeholders.
