NAP trainers are skilled-up through the NAP-GSP ToT

29 March 2018, Bangkok, Thailand: NAP-GSP has held a Training of Trainers (ToT) to support the next round of regional training workshops on NAPs, planned for the Pacific and Africa in 2018.
Developing countries have requested the joint UNDP / UN Environment NAP-GSP for support for specific aspects as they move forward with advancing their adaptation planning. NAP-GSP is developing a set of three training modules on the themes of: Climate Finance, Appraisal of Adaptation Options and Mainstreaming Adaptation into Water Resources, together with the UN Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR).
NAP-GSP partners and collaborating organisations in the NAP-GSP were invited to attend the ToT, which was held at the Hua Chang Heritage Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand from 26 to 29 March 2018.
Attending the ToT were 20 participants from seven organisations: UN Environment, UNDP, UNITAR, UN-Habitat, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN (FAO), the Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).  
The ToT featured practical experiences of designing and presenting training sessions – featuring the new NAP-GSP Water Resources modules, with the aim to support partners with the relevant skills to facilitate the delivery of NAP trainings. 
A NAP-GSP Partner Meeting took place to discuss the approach for future NAP-GSP trainings, promoting the training packages beyond the NAP-GSP, and synergies with relevant activities of partner organisations.
