How Fiji Is Using the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process to Scale Up Ecosystem-Based Adaptation (EbA)
Since launching it’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) in 2018, Fiji has begun implementing the adaptation measures prioritized through its NAP process, notably scaling up Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) efforts—which is a type of Nature-based Solution (NbS).
This briefing note provides an overview of how the Fijian government is approaching this task and share lessons for other countries seeking to use the NAP process to scale up EbA.
