Supporting Non-LDCs to advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs)

Project Overview

The National Adaptation Plan - Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) for non-Least Developed Countries (non-LDCs) commenced in July 2015. The NAP-GSP is funded by the Special Climate Change Fund of the Global Environment Facility. The programme is a support mechanism to countries engaged in national adaptation planning processes. NAP-GSP will provide technical support on NAP processes to non-LDCs in the following areas:
 
(1)  Institutional support to develop NAP road-maps
(2)  Training on relevant, tools, methods and guidelines to support effective climate change adaptation planning
(3)  Knowledge sharing to enhance international and regional cooperation
 
The programme is jointly implemented by UNDP and UNEP in collaboration with development partners. NAP-GSP does not provide grants to requesting countries. Support from the programme can however assist countries to leverage finance from a variety of existing sources. This GSP builds on lessons learnt from the implementation of the GSP for LDCs.
 
Countries interested in technical assistance from the NAP-GSP should send Official letters of  request through  their national UNFCCC focal points to UNDP and UNEP addressed to Rohini Kohli (rohini.kohli@undp.org) and Mozaharul Alam (Mozaharul.Alam@unep.org).  The programme will accept requests on a rolling basis.

Country Initiatives

Supporting Egypt to advance their NAP process

Egypt NAMA

Under the Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme, financed by the EU, Germany, and AusAID, participating countries are primarily focusing on capacity building activities at the national level.  This includes formulating Low-Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) and/or Nationally appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), as well as establishing the underlying data collec

Egypt- Second National Communication

The creation of a National Communication offers countries the opportunity to contribute with technically sound studies and information that can be used for designing mitigation and adaptation measures, and project proposals that can and will help increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Strengthening the Monitoring & Reporting System for Multilateral Environmental Agreements in Egypt

Previous assessments have revealed a number of priority cross-cutting capacity constraints concerned with public participation, technology transfer and cooperation, monitoring, evaluation and reporting, financial mechanisms/economic valuation, legislation formulation/enforcement, and the development of scientific research capacities.

Supporting Georgia to advance their NAP process

Climate Resilient Flood Management Practices in Georgia

This project aims to make highly vulnerable communities and regions resilient to climate related hazards such as floods and flash floods. It takes an integrated and comprehensive approach by addressing critical gaps in land use policy and regulatory frameworks, which are fundamental to climate resilient flood management.

Supporting Honduras to advance their NAP process

Honduras' Second National Communication - In Progress

The creation of a National Communication offers countries the opportunity to contribute with technically sound studies and information that can be used for designing mitigation and adaptation measures, and project proposals that can and will help increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Systemic Resilience and Reduced Vulnerability of Urban Poor in Honduras

Access to water is still limited in many areas of Honduras. Degraded watersheds affected by deforestation and pollution of both surface and ground water aggravate this critical situation. Urban areas (Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula) and several agricultural areas (Patuca basin) will face increased water scarcity in the near future.

Supporting Ivory Coast to advance their NAP process

Strengthening the Environmental Management Information System for Coastal Development in Cote d’Ivoire

At present, the environmental information on which development agents base their decisions is incomplete, outdated, unavailable, or inaccessible in Cote d’Ivoire.

English

Supporting Tajikistan to advance their NAP process

Community Learning & Capacity Building for Global Environmental Management & Poverty Reduction in Tajikistan

The project aims to expand Tajikistan’s capacity to generate global environmental benefits through educating and involving diverse stakeholders in addressing Rio Convention themes at national and local levels. The project will build capacity to use two key environmental management tools to implement the Rio Conventions and to reduce poverty.

Sustaining agricultural biodiversity in the face of climate change in Tajikistan

According to the Russian botanist and geneticist, Nikolai Vavilov, Tajikistan is a storehouse of globally important agro-biodiversity.

Tajikistan's Second National Communication - 2008

The creation of a National Communication offers countries the opportunity to contribute with technically sound studies and information that can be used for designing mitigation and adaptation measures, and project proposals that can and will help increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Supporting Uruguay to advance their NAP process

Climate Change Adaptation in the Canelones, Montevideo and San Jose Regions of Uruguay (TACC)

The Down to Earth: Territorial Approach to Climate Change (TACC) is part of a partnership between the United Nations and sub-national governments for fostering climate friendly development at the sub-national level.

Implementation of Climate Change Adaptation measures in Coastal Areas of Uruguay

The project aims to put in place adaptive land planning and coastal management policies and practices to enhance the resilience of Uruguay’s coastal ecosystem to climate change, removing obstacles for adaptation in the process.

Supporting developing countries to integrate the agricultural sectors into National Adaptation Plans: Uruguay

The agriculture sectors, in particular livestock farming, plays a major role in the Uruguayan economy, accounting for 7 percent of the GDP and 70 percent of the country’s total exports.
