NAP-GSP Resources

Building Capacity in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to Participate Effectively in Intergovernmental Processes’ is a multi-stakeholder global programme implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Environment (UN Environment), funded through the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Programme execution is supported by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
This publication gives an outline of the joint  UNDP and UN Environment National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP).
 
The joint UNDP-UN Environment National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) was launched in June 2013, following a decision at COP 17 in Durban, requesting UN organisations to support the National Adaptation Plan process. The programme is financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), and the Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF). 
 
The NAP-GSP, together with partners, is assisting developing countries to identify technical, institutional and financial needs to integrate climate change adaptation into medium and long-term national planning and financing. Activities under the NAP-GSP target decision-makers from Environment, Planning and Finance Ministries, at the state and local level. The NAP-GSP provides technical expertise and guidance on country NAP processes, and provides opportunities for knowledge exchange on NAPs.
