NAP Global Network
The Network was established in 2014 at the 20th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 20) in Lima, Peru, initiated by adaptation practitioners from 11 developing and developed countries. Today, the NAP Global Network connects over 1,300 participants from more than 140 countries working on national adaptation planning and action, and has delivered direct support to more than 40 countries. Financial support for the Network has been provided by Austria, Canada, Germany and the United States. IISD hosts the Network's Secretariat.
Our vision is a world where communities and countries—particularly the poorest and most vulnerable—are able to articulate, work toward, and realize their development aspirations in a changing climate. This is possible by having robust adaptation planning processes that are:
- Aligned with development priorities and plans.
- Effective in channelling resources to the people, places and systems that need them most.
Our mission is to harness the collective knowledge and resources of governments, practitioners, donors, and civil society to build capacities and accelerate the formulation and implementation of NAP processes.
