  • 1. ABOUT NAP-GSP SUPPORT: LESSONS FROM IMPLEMENTATION AND FUTURE DIRECTION UNDP / UNEP NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLAN GLOBAL SUPPORT PROGRAMME (NAP-GSP): SUPPORTING COUNTRIES TO ADVANCE NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLANS
  • 2. Overview to the session NAP Expo 2015 Building national capacities for the NAP process
  • 3. “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 “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 need capacity development in that area.” Mrs. Sonam Lhaden Khandu – National Environment Commission, Bhutan Capacity gaps, challenges and opportunities expressed by LDCs
  • 4. The NAP is largely about developing skills and functions, including climate services that will help steer plans, programmes, policies and investments towards addressing climate risk and building resilience - at national, sectoral and sub-national levels - in the medium to long term The NAP Process as a means to develop national capacity in the medium term
  • 5. Levels for building capacity: Policy, institutions and individual
  • 6. Iterative and process intensive approach
  • 7. Key questions 1. What are the lessons learned from capacity building under the NAPA 2. What are the new emerging areas in countries for capacity development to address climate risk in the medium term 3. How can we build capacity at policy, institutional and individuals? 4. What has worked? Why has it worked?
  • 8. Overview of the NAP GSP
  • 9. Activities commenced in June 2013 What does the NAP-GSP do? Supports requesting countries with one- on-one technical assistance on demand to get started on the NAP process Provides tools and training to support key steps of the NAP process through regional training Facilitates exchange of lessons and knowledge through South-South and North-South cooperation Programme Objective: “To strengthen institutional and technical capacities for iterative development of comprehensive NAPs”
  • 10. Key aspects of the NAP-GSP support Builds on efforts underway from the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) – which address urgent and immediate priorities for adaptation Focusses on the need for countries to initiate steps to identify,finance and implement appropriate medium- to long-term adaptation needs Balances sectoral and cross-sectoral priorities, at national, sub-national and local levels. Analyzes appropriate data Considers the country’s experiences and good practices. Encourages knowledge sharing and learns from other countries’ experiences. Responds to the invitation made by the UNFCC Parties in Durban, Doha and Warsaw to the UN Agencies and other organizations to provide support including through support programs
  • 11. Countries that have requested support from NAP-GSP LDCs which have officially requested to NAP-GSP – and already received – ongoing one-on-one support and mobilization for targeted technical assistance Least Developed Countries (LDCs) LDCs which have officially requested support, which is forthcoming from NAP-GSP
  • 12. Examples of NAP-GSP support Assists national NAP teams with training / briefings/dialogue/sensitization of national stakeholders Scoping/stocktaking missions to support national teams to review relevant plans and activities that have entry points of relevance to the NAP process. Facilitation support to develop NAP Road Map - or to respond to specific technical support needs Regional technical trainings on NAP process. Specific sessions on climate finance and leveraging public and private finance Reviewing NAP documents in coordination with ministries and sectors Capacity building opportunities, sensitisation and awareness-raising for relevant sectors Development of strategies for communication and education on NAP Visualizing the process by developing infographics and other communication tools to aid dialogue Virtual training tools and capacity building - such as a series of thematic or sectoral-focussed webinars Developing a knowledge portal - creating opportunities for exchange of experiences and emerging lessons Support to link with regional institutions and initiatives
  • 13. Key NAP-GSP activities so far Aug 2013 – April 2015 Regional Training Workshops in collaboration with the LEG •Decision-makers from Environment, Planning and Finance Ministries from LDCs oriented on the steps for National Adaptation Planning as well as on leveraging finance by NAP GSP team and partners with the participation of the GEF. •Asia (teams trained from 8 countries) •Pacific training (trained from 4 countries). •Africa (teams trained from 15 Anglophone countries and 18 Francophone countries) = 120 people

  • 17. Progress and lessons learned on NAP process in countries
  • 18. MALAWI: Has officially launched the NAP process and established a cross-ministerial NAP task force which includes Ministry of Planning, sectoral ministries and Ministry of Environment. CAMBODIA: Has identified building blocks of the NAP process as the CCCSP and CCCAP, and climate fiscal framework. Six areas of strengthening the implementation of adaptation are seen as the as value added of the NAP process. These are identified under three work-streams, steering, implementing and monitoring the NAP process. BANGLADESH: Has prepared a detailed methodological note and road map for the NAP process and has identified activities; detailed scenarios, analyzing Bangladesh’s Specific Vulnerability (by sector), visualizing adaptation needs in vulnerable sectors and integration of the NAP with national development pathways NIGER: Directions for NAP are identified as a focus on skills development, institutional capacity building, supporting coordination and steering of adaptation, building an effective information platform, mainstreaming in Vision 2035, and strengthening CCA mainstreaming and implementation with local level governance structures. D.R. Congo: has developed a road map for the NAP. The focus will be put on strengthening a strategic framework for the NAP through the setting up of a coordination mechanism, raising awareness and building capacities of key stakeholders at national level, as well as implementing a more comprehensive NAP process in pilot provinces. COMOROS: Has officially launched its NAP process at national level and will soon set up a steering committee with strong involvement from the General Commission for Planning. The priority areas of intervention will be to further develop stakeholders’ awareness and ownership, strengthen coordination and M&E mechanisms for development planning and to build institutional capacities, incl. at Islands level. Snap-shot of NAP process in countries MADAGASCAR: is completing its NAP process initiated in 2012 to align with the LEG TG. The key areas of intervention will be climate information, economic modeling and the strengthening of CC coordination and CC integration mechanisms
  • 19. Countries call for simplified supplements to the LEG NAP technical guidelines - not new tools Countries eager to move from planning to implementation Countries requesting additional technical support both in-country and regional level trainings to advance NAPs More targeted and sustained one-one-one support is required based on specific institutional and national contexts It is crucial to link the NAP process to ongoing mid-term and long-term development strategy processes Lessons learned from supporting countries Relevant connections can be made to National Communications process and existing NAPA implementation projects. Regional thematic workshops provide a useful avenue for technical training as well as South- South exchange
  • 20. Lessons learned from implementation of NAP-GSP • Partnership enables the programme to cover many relevant sectors, with targeted sector and regional expertise • Provides synergies with existing adaptation planning programmes • e.g. WACDEP through GWP in Africa • e.g. GIZ partnering in scoping and capacity building in Africa, Cambodia, etc. Partnerships with organisations are key to supporting countries for the NAP Most countries agree that NAP is both a process and a document • The JNAP is a bridge between the NAPA to the NAP process The connection between the NAPA and the NAP process is significant • A NAP process is country-specific – NAP documents may inform the process Climate finance for NAP a priority for most countries including finance for implementation • Malawi – First National Workshop on NAP - bringing the sectoral Ministries together The NAP process should systematically involve a broad spectrum of environment, planning and finance ministries – including central government and line ministries of vulnerable sectors to address the NAP in an integrated way
