Guinea National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - July 2007

As stated in the NAPA directives, this project's justification resides in the fact that it will readily incorporate measures of adaptation to the adverse effects of present and future climate changes in the national poverty reduction programme. The project equally seeks to contribute to the capacity building of local expertise and partners on the ground in order to address the requirements for adaptation to new environmental conditions through a participatory approach. Information contained in the NAPA should help in preparing the second national communication for Guinea.

Ethiopia National Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - June 2007

Ethiopia has special needs regarding adaptation to climate change. With arid and semi-arid areas, areas liable to drought and desertification, areas with fragile ecosystems including mountainous ecosystems, and an economy highly dependent on consumption of fossil fuels and associated energy- intensive products, Ethiopia is particularly vulnerable. An overriding need is for developed country parties to the Convention to take full account of these circumstances in order to facilitate the transfer of needed technology and resources so that effective adaptation can continue to take place. 

Eritrea National Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - April 2007

Eritrea has special needs regarding adaptation to climate change.

Democratic Republic of Congo National Progamme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - September 2006

The objective of the NAPA is to produce a list of priority actions that are urgent and immediate and that contribute to the efforts of adaptation of the country to the adverse effects of climate change and integrate it into the D.R.Cs development strategies. These will benefit from the support of interested donors since the country has very limited internal capacities of adaptation. The actions will also include human and institutional capacity building. 

Chad National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document (French) - February 2010

One of the primary objectives of Chad's NAPA is the identification and outlining of urgent and immediate actions for expanding and broadening the range of climate change coping strategies applied to small communities in order to improve their capacity of adaptation to the current climatic variability (e.g. more frequent periods of drought), extreme events, and to future changes.

Cape Verde National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - December 2007

One of the primary objectives of Cape Verde's NAPA is the identification and outlining of urgent and immediate actions for expanding and broadening the range of climate change coping strategies applied to small communities in order to improve their capacity of adaptation to the current climatic variability, extreme events, and, consequently to future changes.

Cambodia National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - October 2006

Climate change has become a real challenge for all countries throughout the world. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) clearly recognises this issue and is fully committed to the global efforts to address climate change, both at the national and international levels. Therefore, Cambodia ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1995 and acceded to its Kyoto Protocol in 2002.

Burundi National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - January 2007

The objective of the NAPA is to produce a list of priority actions that are urgent and immediate and that contribute to the efforts of adaptation of the country to the adverse effects of climate change and integrate it into Burundi's development strategies. These will benefit from the support of interested donors since Burundi has very limited internal capacities of adaptation. The actions will also include human and institutional capacity building. 

Burkina Faso National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document (French) - November 2007

National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change; those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage. The following is the NAPA for Burkina Faso.

Benin National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document (French) - January 2008

National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change; those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage. The following is the NAPA for Benin.
