  • 1. Aicha AHMED, Adaptation Project Coordinator NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLAN – CASE OF DJIBOUTI NAP EXPO, BONN (GERMANY) APRIL, 14 TH 2015
  • 2. INTRODUCTION - Located at the entrance to the Red Sea in the Horn of Africa - Area: 23 200 km² - Population (2009): 818,159 inhabitants - Semi-arid climate, desert, - Low rainfall (150mm / year - Limited water resources (water stress) - Composed mainly of volcanic and mountainous regions
  • 3. ENVIRONMENTAL PRESSURES Djibouti faces 5 types of environmental challenges:  Water resources → strapped and under pressure from saltwater intrusion  Desertification → increasing rapidly due to recurrent droughts  The urban environment → unhealthy and where landuse is acute  The marine environment → Coral reefs and mangroves are in an advanced state of degradation  Natural disasters and catastrophes → with sismicity Djibouti is under constant threat of floods and droughts
  • 4. NAPA OF DJIBOUTI  Mission: Communicate urgent and immediate adaptation needs and response options to the adverse impacts of CC + develop capacity building strategies of stakeholders and grassroots communities  Objectives:  Protection of lives and livelihoods, resources, infrastructure and environment  Identifying and implementing urgent needs of climate change and variability  Integration of adaptation measures and objectives into sectoral policies and national planning  Community outreach, civil society and decision-maker on the magnitude of CC impacts and related adaptation needs  In line with the country's planning framework (LOES, CSLP, PANE..)
  • 5. INVENTORY  CCA not sufficiently taken into account in Vision 2035  Limited awareness of CCA policy makers and the general public  Insufficient integration in budgeting  Existence of coordination mechanisms (CNCC, CNDD)  HR needs strengthening, technical and management capacity  Lack of instruments and CCA integration tools  Limited observation of climate information network  Lack of communication platform, support and information sharing
  • 6. INVENTORY  Need to update climate scenarios (with AR5) and vulnerability studies  Insufficient training of players on option pricing tools  Need management skills (project management, monitoring and evaluation, ...) and techniques (cost-benefit analysis, vulnerability assessment, GIS ...) Added value of the NAP: developing coherent vision, taking into account climate risks, increase systematic monitoring capacity of climate information, strengthen institutional capacity and professional skills, integrate CCA at the local level, to improve access to climate finance
  • 7. TRAINING / EDUCATION ABOUT PROCESS NAP  Training was held in Djibouti from 30 March to 2 April 2015  Several departments represented
  • 8. ELEMENTS OF ROADMAP-DJIBOUTI A. Preparatory work and consideration of gaps • Existence of a coordination mechanism CC (CNCC), but need a mandate, vision and operationalization for the NAP • Need for awareness and ownership • Need to update the weather information • Need to take stock of the projects and information related to the CCA, SCAPE, Vision 2035, but CCA taking account very limited (No national strategy CC) B. Elements of the preparatory phase • Climate information system, including dissemination and valorisation strengthening (particularly for certain regions and sectors) • Development / ownership of technical tools and skills (modeling, vulnerability studies, economic evaluation, integration), management and strengthening of HR
  • 9. C. Implementation strategy • Strengthening intersectoral coordination and NAP process • Integration in national processes: annual plans, three- year macro-fiscal framework, 2020-2024 SCAPE, etc… • Development of a comprehensive and continuous program of technical capacity and functional D. Notification, Monitoring and Review • Communication on the activities and awareness of stakeholders • Monitoring and evaluation based on the existant mechanism with indicators and tools specific to CC • Continuous updating of knowledge on initiatives on adaptation to climate change in different sectors
