Effective, gender-responsive & inclusive National Adaptation Plan processes
Mar 23, 2023 - Mar 31, 2026
The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Global Network is a multi-donor, multi-country initiative that aims to advance national adaptation planning and action in developing countries. The Secretariat of the Network is hosted by IISD. The proposed project, to be delivered through the NAP Global Network, aims to support selected countries to improve governance of climate change adaptation through more effective, gender-responsive, and socially inclusive NAP processes, with a focus SIDS, LDCs, and Sub-Saharan African countries. Activities will improve capacities, enhance participation of stakeholders, and increase awareness and recognition of the importance of effective, gender-responsive, and socially inclusive NAP processes. By improving governance of adaptation, the initiative will contribute to reduced vulnerability to climate change for people of all genders and social groups in the target countries, which is a prerequisite for reducing poverty and achieving sustainable development.
