WEBINAR | Sector Integration in the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process

Share This

How are countries ensuring climate-resilient planning in priority sectors?

One of the two objectives of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process is to integrate climate change adaptation into new and existing development planning across sectors and levels. While there is no single approach to integrating adaptation considerations into sector planning, concrete examples are emerging as more countries engage in NAP processes. Countries that have shared their experiences through the NAP Global Network have highlighted that the impetus for sector integration can be found in different ministries and at different levels depending on the country context.

This webinar will explore a spectrum of approaches to sector integration in the NAP process, illustrating how different country-specific pathways can lead to a common outcome of sectoral integration.
