sNAPshot | Developing Capacity for Subnational Adaptation Action in the Republic of the Sudan
This sNAPshot policy brief explores Sudan's approach to developing capacity for subnational adaptation action, which supports the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process.
The Republic of the Sudan is highly vulnerable to climate change. Recognizing the importance of climate change adaptation for its development progress, Sudan was one of the first developing countries to submit its National Adaptation Plan (NAP) document to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Building on an earlier overview brief, this sNAPshot policy brief from the NAP Global Network focuses on a unique feature of the Sudan NAP: its emphasis on subnational adaptation action, led by state governments. This makes it an interesting example of vertical integration, which is the process of creating intentional and strategic linkages between national and subnational adaptation planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
