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.

As the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation at the national level is becoming ever more important, a number of countries have built their own M&E frameworks, with others stating their intention do so in the near future. This document provides an overview of the potential steps needed in designing an adaptation M&E framework and plan for the agriculture sectors.
Impact evaluation (IE) enables programme managers and policymakers to plan interventions in a rational and evidence-based manner. While a range of evaluation methods exists, this briefing note provides an overview of rigorous and quantitatively sound IE methods. These methods provide programme managers and policymakers with thorough evidence on the impact of adaptation interventions, allowing them to make informed policy choices on adaptation options. By engaging in detailed, evidence-based evaluation, policymakers and programme managers can address critical elements for the formulation and implementation of the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).
The briefing note highlights the need to apply a country-driven institutional capacity development approach for the formulation, implementation and monitoring of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) for more impactful and sustainable climate adaptation action.
Using the framework of the National Adaptation Plans (NAP) process, this brief provides an overview of the key issues to consider as well as the main entry points for gender mainstreaming in the development of NAPs for the agriculture sectors.
This briefing note illustrates the role and logic of Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) in the evaluation of climate change adaptation policies and projects in the agricultural sector and describes the main analytical steps for conducting it, providing practical examples. The note describes the standard CBA methodology but highlights the peculiarities related to its implementation in the context of climate change adaptation in agriculture. It is a knowledge product on CBA within the Integrating agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP–Ag) Programme.
Uruguay ha elaborado un conjunto avanzado de políticas, estrategias y planes sobre el cambio climático. El país se ha comprometido a alcanzar metas sectoriales de mitigación ambiciosas y cuantificadas para 2030.
Improved national financial monitoring systems will increase accountability on climate change spending and foster transparency for global efforts to reach the goals outlined through the Paris Agreement and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, according to a joint study by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Latin American and Caribbean Climate Finance Group (GFLAC).
This case study chronicles Uganda’s experiences developing a gender‑responsive National Adaptation Plan for the Agricultural Sector (NAP-Ag) and related capacity development for gender-responsive planning, budgeting and policy formulation. Lessons learned from these endeavors can provide insights for other countries who are seeking, like Uganda, to align NAP or agricultural sector NAP efforts with national goals as well as the Paris Agreement (Article 7.5), which mandates gender-responsive adaptation actions and capacity-building activities.
