Presentation Description

The National Adaptation Plan Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) is a UNDP-UNEP programme, financed by the LDCF. The NAP-GSP is assisting Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). NAPs will bring greater focus and coordination to country-led efforts in disaster management and disaster risk reduction, and climate change adaptation. The NAP will add to the strategic suite of other sectoral plans and policies for countries that help to guide internal development resourcing mechanisms as well as those provided by donors. The programme was launched on 14 June 2013 following its CEO approval by the GEF on 29 May 2013. As of November 2013, partner agencies to GSP include UNDP, UNEP, WHO, FAO, IFAD, UNITAR, GEF, UNFCCC, GWP, GIZ , PROVIA, and UNISDR. http://www.undp-alm.org/projects/naps-ldcs

UNDP / UNEP NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLAN GLOBAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME : SUPPORTING LEAST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES TO ADVANCE NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLANS

PowerPoint Presentation:

The N ational A daptation P lan (NAP) process was established under the Cancun Adaptation Framework (2010). It enables Parties to formulate and implement national adaptation plans (NAPs) as a means of identifying medium- and long-term adaptation needs and developing and implementing strategies and programmes to address those needs. It is continuous, progressive and iterative process which follows country-driven, gender-sensitive, participatory and fully transparent approach. UNFCCC The NAP process at a glance

:

Support LDCs with one-on-one technical assistance on demand to get started on the NAP process Provide tools and training to support key steps of the NAP process in-country Facilitate exchange of lessons and knowledge through South-South and North-South cooperation Activities commenced in August 2013 What does the NAP-GSP do?

PowerPoint Presentation:

The LDCF funded NAP GSP works in conjunction with UNDP, UNEP, The GEF Secretariat, UNFCCC, WHO, Global Water Partnership, FAO, IFAD, UNISDR and UNITAR. GIZ is a collaborator Joint programmes of UNDP and UNEP -- Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI), National Communications Support Programme, Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme -- and PROVIA UNDP’s ongoing work readiness , access to and governance of climate change finance, Climate Public Expenditure and Institutional Reviews (CPEIRs), economics of adaptation, and Boots on the Ground programme Multiplying synergies under NAP-GSP

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Capacity needs to be developed to support scenarios building, identifying the adaptation options and appraising the options. That’s the expertise that we need.” Dr . Aloysius Kampherewera - Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Management, Malawi “In Uganda, like elsewhere, women are most affected when there are climate change issues. The children and the women suffer most. But when it comes to planning and involvement they always take a back seat .” Mrs. Edith Kateme-Kasajja, National Planning Authority, Uganda Challenges expressed by LDCs “We have really great capacity gaps...Because of the war, our efforts have been concentrated on peace-keeping, so we lack the technical tools to adapt to climate change.” Mme. Providence Fale Omona, Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Tourism, DRC “ Many people at the national and local level lack understanding of climate change, the science of climate change, the impacts of climate change and adaptation... We still need capacity development in that area .” Mrs . Sonam Lhaden Khandu – National Environment Commission, Bhutan

PowerPoint Presentation:

“I hope UNEP/UNDP team has developed a critical mass of NAP personalities in each LDC government organisation to start, or to scale up NAP activities. Let us work together to bring change in the adaptation portfolio in the LDCs .” Batu Krishna Uprety, Chairman, Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) “ Training is key… We need assistance from NAP-GSP people to train us in Angola. Then those people will be able to deal with adaptation projects, raise funds, negotiate and implement adaptation measures .” Mr. Iabias Moma Huongo, Climate Change Focal Point, Angola “ The NAP-GSP can offer technical skills… and can assist us in many ways… For us to implement the NAP we first need to identify and develop the climate change future and current scenarios as well as how to do cost/benefit analysis of adaptation. Further we need capacity to mainstream adaptation into sectorial plans.” Ms. Keketso Adel Jobo , Ministry of Energy, Meteorology and Water Affairs, Lesotho Support to partners “ At institutional level we need to have the people who know the process, we need to have the models, we need to have the tools to embark on a NAP. At the policy level we also need support to develop the climate change mainstreaming policies.” Mr. Pa Ousman JarJu – Department of Water Resources, Gambia “NAP-GSP can help us in mainstreaming adaptation issues into our development planning ... And adaptation is key to Sierra Leone – it is a priority. This can help us to minimize climate change impacts because our rural communities are highly vulnerable.” Mr. Momodou Bah, Environment Protection Agency, Office of the President, Sierra Leone

Lessons learnt from implementation:

Lessons learnt from implementation Most LDCs agree that NAP is both a process and a document T he connection between the NAPA and NAP process is an important concern for countries. In particular for those who have challenges with NAPA implementation Climate finance for NAP is a priority for most countries including finance for implementation Institutional coordination is a challenge for all countries. Exchange of experiences can promote learning Broadening the NAP process beyond environment ministries to integrate with planning and budgeting processes and national development strategies is a long term process

PowerPoint Presentation:

Regional training on NAP Guidelines for Pacific countries One on one country support (TBC) Timor Leste, Lao PDR and Bhutan . Chad, Congo DRC, Malawi, Tanzania , Sudan, Uganda Follow-up of country support to Burkina Faso, Cambodia and Niger Regional virtual platform for exchange using web and other Knowledge Management tools Upcoming activities June 2014 – December 2014

PowerPoint Presentation:

Emerging issues based on NAP-GSP experience Demand for technical support to advance the NAP process from LDCs is growing. NAP-GSP has received requests from 26 countries till date The m edium term framework of the NAP requires sustained investment The NAP is a country driven process that needs overarching efforts and partnerships between Planning, Finance and Environment m inistries More targeted and sustained one-one-one support is required based on specific institutional and national context in LDCs Regional thematic workshops provide an avenue for technical training as well as South-South exchange
