Information note for participants



This training workshop is a part of a series of activities aimed at supporting Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to address the adverse impacts of climate change through medium and longer-term National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes. By facilitating a regional exchange and providing technical support in the form of existing guidance and tools, this regional workshop aims to support policy makers and technical officials from the following LDCs from Africa – Angola, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia. 

The participants at this workshop are officials from Ministries of Finance, Planning and Environment. 

The Learning Objectives are to;

  • Enhance understanding of the NAP process according to the UNFCCC/LEG technical guidelines for the NAP process;
  • Clarify the potential entry points for the NAP process in countries taking into account political economy;
  • Identify specific technical, institutional and financial needs to support the integration of medium- and long-term climate change adaptation into existing national and sub-national planning and processes;
  • Learn from what other countries have done and/or are in the process of doing to advance their country specific NAP process through an exchange of lessons learnt and experiences;  
  • Increase awareness of existing guidance, tools and methods that can help LDCs develop national frameworks and strategies to advance their respective NAP process; and,
  • Exchange information on the mechanisms and options for adaptation financing (including external and internal sources) and the institutionalization of a NAP process in the context of ongoing planning and budgeting.


An interactive participatory approach will be used for the workshop with the use of facilitators to lead sessions. Practical working group sessions and “clinics” will be used to promote hands-on skills-based training to participants.

In addition; UNITAR will be conducting video interviews throughout the workshop during coffee-breaks as part of a knowledge product on NAPs, under the ‘Brokering of Knowledge’ component of NAP-GSP.
