Resilience in Action: Five years of supporting National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes
National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes are a fundamental driver of the global climate action agenda. These planning processes improve coordination, set priorities for action, mobilize resources, and allow countries to track progress toward the achievement of their adaptation goals.
The NAP Global Network has been supporting developing countries with national adaptation planning and action for five years, helping them work toward achieving their development aspirations in a changing climate. During this time, we have seen significant progress within partner countries in advancing NAP processes, the lessons from which have been shared through South–South peer learning in an effort to accelerate global progress. This report shares highlights from this work, to document and share the approaches that have worked as countries navigate their often challenging—but absolutely critical—NAP processes.
The NAP Global Network hopes to use the lessons from our first five years to build on and better support countries to tackle the climate crisis through national adaptation planning and action.
