Gaborone , Botswana

The objective of the in-person session, "From Planning to Action: National Adaptation Plan (NAP) implementation for climate-resilient development" at the upcoming NAP Expo will be to engage in a participatory dialogue with NAP practitioners and stakeholders to review and identify the barriers, solutions, opportunities and key requirements for enabling effective NAP implementation. This session is co-hosted by UNEP, UNDP and the NAP Global Network

At the end of the sessions, participants will have gained an understanding of:

  • Key factors that contribute to the implementation of NAPs, including mainstreaming and financing strategies.
  • The potential barriers and solutions for effective NAP implementation, monitoring and reporting.
  • Constitution of an informal network of NAP practitioners focusing on implementation. 

 

Background information 

As of October 2021, 129 developing countries had undertaken at least one activity related to the formulation and implementation of NAPs. With more than 38 countries having submitted their NAPs to the UNFCCC, the global focus is increasingly shifting to greater support to the implementation of NAPs, unpacking what are the barriers and opportunities to move ahead and accelerate adaptation, especially for Least Developed Countries.   

As outlined in the LEG NAP Technical Guidelines and emerging experience, there are key building blocks that would enable the successful implementation of NAPs, from integrating adaptation into national, sub-national and sectoral plans and budgets to translating adaptation priorities to investable programmes, including Ecosystem-based Adaptation, in support of achieving climate resilient development.
