Supporting Senegal to advance their NAP Process

Introduction

Status of assistance to Senegal for their NAP process:

  • UNDP is supporting Senegal with initial NAP stocktaking and identification of needs regarding their adaptation planning and budgeting.
  • The Government of Senegal participated a side event in COP 21 on 'Adaptation Finance: what countries can do to scale up adaptation finance' on 3rd December 2015. Madeleine Diouf Sarr (Senegal, Director for Climate Change) presented the outcomes of the LDCF-funded projects in Senegal and emphasized the process to mobilize funds through direct access, including setting up a national climate change trust fund and accrediting a national implementing entity to the Adaptation Fund which allowed them to use the fast track accreditation process for the GCF. However, she stressed the need to build national capacities, especially of the line ministries and the NIE, to prepare project proposals.
  • NAP-GSP facilitated a NAP stakeholder workshop with the Ministry of Environment in July 2015 and is assisting in planning fisheries consultations to start the NAP process at the sector level, in cooperation with the Government, the UNDP Country Office and USAID. 
  • A delegation from Senegal attended the NAP-GSP Africa Regional Training Workshop (Francophone) from 21-24 April 2014.
