What are the expected outcomes of the NAP process? • Articulation of climate change adaptation priorities • Clear pathways towards addressing the priorities • Enhanced coordination on adaptation • Accelerated and strategic investments in adaptation • Establishment of systems and capacity to facilitate progress on adaptation Ultimate outcome: Reduction of a country’s vulnerability to climate change impacts in medium and long term
  • 8. What’s new about the NAP process? • Shifting away from short-term, project-based approach towards a strategic planning process • Recognition that adaptation is a continuous, iterative process • Links adaptation planning to sustainable development planning • Emphasis on integration of climate change across sectors and levels
  • 9. What makes a NAP process effective? • Country driven • Participatory and transparent • Gender-responsive • Takes into consideration vulnerable groups, communities and ecosystems • Based on best available science and, as appropriate, traditional and indigenous knowledge • Oriented towards institutionalization and implementation of adaptation
