Developing countries require significant financing to support the development and implementation of their national adaptation plan (NAP) processes.

This financing is expected to come from a mix of sources, including domestic public finance, international public finance and private finance.

Building on an earlier overview brief on domestic public finance options for NAP processes, this NAP Global Network sNAPshot takes a closer look at five county governments in Kenya—Garissa, Isiolo, Kitui, Makueni and Waji. These counties have established County Climate Change Funds (CCCFs) that identify, prioritize and finance investments to reduce climate risk and achieve adaptation priorities.
