Supporting Djibouti to advance their NAP Process

Introduction

Status of assistance to Djibouti for their NAP process:

  • Following a Government request, a training workshop for national ministries was organized by NAP-GSP to launch the NAP process nationally during 30th March – 02 April 2015 in Djibouti by the Ministry of Habitat, Urbanism and Environment in collaboration with the UNDP Country Office. To mark the launch, a high-level sensitization meeting followed the technical training and was opened by three Ministers of the Government of Djibouti. At the launch, the Minister for Economy and Finance highlighted the paramount importance of the NAP process for the country’s development. 
  • The NAP-GSP fielded experts from UNDP and UNITAR using the GIZ/ UNDP/UNITAR training package to provide technical training on the NAP process. This helped key representatives of sectoral ministries to gain a stronger understanding of the NAP process and of the mainstreaming of adaptation into medium and long-term development planning and budgeting. To complete this support, the NAP-GSP will assist the Government to conduct a stock-take of the institutional framework and existing climate adaptation initiatives and identify priority interventions for the NAP process in Djibouti in quarter 3, 2015. 
  • The training workshop in Djibouti brought together 30 national experts from various ministries and departments as well as members of civil society. The training was delivered at the request of the Ministry of Housing, Urbanism and Environment by a training team drawn from UNDP and UNITAR, with support from the NAP-GSP and the UNDP Country Office. 
  • NAP training modules jointly developed by GIZ, UNDP and UNITAR were utilized to support the training within the framework of the LEG Guidelines. The country mission was financially supported by the LDCF funded NAP-GSP as well as GIZ.
  • Participants enhanced their understanding of the NAP process and the UNFCCC Technical Guidelines on NAPs, and considered how to integrate climate change adaptation into national institutions and  development planning.
  • Activities included a  preliminary stocktaking of the institutional set-up and relevant initiatives who could contribute to and being entry points for the NAP process, and planning for a NAP-roadmap to advance national adaptation planning in Djibouti.
  • Previously, a Government delegation from Djibouti attended the NAP-GSP / PAG-PNA Africa Regional Training Workshop in April 2014.
  • Mr. Dini Abdallah Omar - nominated focal point - held preliminary discussions with the NAP-GSP team at COP19.  
  • NAP-GSP will schedule a telconference with the NAP nominated focal point to determine further needs.
