Re-envisioning Climate Change Adaptation Policy to Sustain Peace - A typology & Analysis of the NAPs

This study maps the extent to which climate, peace and security intersections are addressed in the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and offers a blueprint for the mainstreaming of climate-related security risks into the NAPs and for synergies between adaptation policies and peacebuilding efforts.

Mainstreaming gender into the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process

According to recent research, climate change causes more negative effects on certain groups of women owing to differences in terms of education, health, employment, access to and control of natural and financial resources, opportunities to participate in policy and decision-making processes, and division of labour. Climate impacts can reduce livelihood opportunities for women, coinciding with the risk of reinforcing inequalities. In addition, the role of women has not been properly recognized in climate action.

Harnessing Nature to Build Climate Resilience: Scaling Up the Use of Ecosystem-based Adaptation

Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) has the potential to significantly enhance the resilience of society to climate change and could be a key part of national and global adaptation efforts. However, despite growing interest among policymakers, donors, scientists and practitioners, the current pace and scale of EbA implementation falls far short of its potential. The aim of this report by UNEP is to highlight the opportunities for scaling up the use of EbA to help put the world on a more climate-resilient and nature-positive pathway.
