Review: Health in National Adaptation Plans (NAPs)
The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process helps countries address the impacts of climate change on their economies, communities, and ecosystems. This includes efforts to promote adaptation in the health sector.
Developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), this report analyzes how health impacts are addressed in 19 NAP documents submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as of December 2020. Furthermore, it identifies areas of opportunity for greater consideration of health in NAP processes, toward climate-resilient health systems.
