The Integrating Agriculture in NAPs Programme supports partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agricultural sector into relevant national planning and budgeting processes. It is a multi-year initiative funded by the German Government that responds to country driven needs. This integration will help to enhance:
  • institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the sector.
  • access to international climate finance sources such as GEF and Green Climate Fund.
  • more strategic allocations of national budgets earmarked for adaptation investments.

Webinar Recordings - Addressing agricultural resilience in long term climate planning instruments

Recordings and Presentations - The landscape of climate planning instruments available to countries under the UNFCCC process includes National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Long Term Strategies (LTS).  These instruments have emerged at different milestones such as the Cancun Adaptation Framework and the Paris Agreement and have specific characteristics and objectives which can contribute to and reinforce each other if leveraged effectively. Despite their very distinctive nature, these national instruments can be harnessed to scale up climate change adaptation by fostering linkages depending upon country context.

Understanding cost-benefit analysis for adaptation options in Uganda

One of the key objectives of the joint FAO-UNDP Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag) is to build technical capacity at the national level on the use of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) tools to guide evidence-based investment decisions in agriculture based on quantitative methods. The use of these tools will enhance national capacity to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Agreement, and are an essential building block in working toward a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.

This technical guidance note details how to develop M&E systems for adaptation planning in agriculture sectors. The first section of the guide introduces the general concept of M&E, then outlines M&E of adaptation specifically and explains how adaptation M&E relates to the agriculture sectors. The second section proposes a seven-step process to support the development of M&E systems for adaptation planning in agriculture sectors.  For each step, a list of stakeholders to engage is provided and guiding questions posed for reflection among key stakeholders. Each step also suggests a set of possible actions and outputs, as well as a list of resources for further reading.
 

The case study series aims to show the links between long-term adaptation planning/NAPs and activities supported by the NAP-Ag programme in the Philippines as well as the resulting impacts. The preparation of this case study is based on a review of country reports and publications, as well as interviews with the NAP-Ag country coordinator and team members, representatives from agencies with CCA responsibilities In the DA, CCC, PAGASA, National Economic and Development Authority and partner organization.

 

The co-led UNDP and FAO Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) Programme is a multi-year (2015-20), USD 17 million initiative funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The Programme supports 11 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to identify and integrate climate change adaptation measures into relevant national planning and budgeting processes, with a focus on the agricultural sectors. This integration is helping to enhance institutional capacities and processes towards operationalizing climate response strategies in the agricultural sectors. NAP-Ag seeks to foster innovative partnerships between ministries of agriculture, environment, planning and finance, and other national actors.  This report highlights the achievements of the programme from 2015 to 2018.
