The SCALA programme organized an in-person side event at the NAP EXPO 2022 in Gaborone, Botswana on “Step-by-step guidance to enable transformative climate solutions as part of NDC/NAP implementation in the agriculture and land use sectors”. This side event is organized by FAO and UNDP to provide an open dialogue amongst National Adaptation Plan country practitioners and stakeholders on the key dimensions, drivers and barriers to transformation in the agriculture and land use sectors within the context of climate change and NAP/NDC implementation. 

The session introduced the UNDP-FAO step-by-step guidance and a tool highlighting practical steps that country planners can take to enable transformative approaches to NAP/NDC planning and implementation in the agriculture and land use sectors. Also, SCALA country experiences, challenges and lessons learned on applying the guidance and facilitating cross-country exchange with other NAP country practitioners were featured to collect feedback and further refine the tool for a global audience.
