  • 5. IV. GAPs from NAPA • Allocation of state budget for each sector on addressing NAPA implementation is not clear, even though some sectoral projects are in place • NAPA Priority on health sector, infrastructure for oil and gas as well as live stock production have not been addressed • Capacity building priorities has been integrated into project level activities but not a stand along program • Interministerial Working Group was established from NCSA and applied for NAP it is now ineffective • Coordination among sectors remains weak since NAPA sectoral working group has no legal mandate to conduct monitoring and evaluation toward NAPA implementation • country ownership remains weak since indirect access modality is applied for GEF funding as well as some projects are being implemented by multilateral agencies • Monitoring and evaluation of the NAPA implementation needs to be enhanced
  • 6. V. Moving from NAPA to NAP: Institutional Capacity Needs for TL • Timor-Leste has submitted its NAP PIF to the GEF and waiting the approval • The following capacity needs are important for the NAP of TL: 1. Enhancing the capacity of institutions in order to remove the gaps identified under the NAPA as well as addressing the capacity needs for the initiating, preparing, implementing and monitoring of the NAP (as of 4 key elements for the NAP under the NAP guidelines) 2. NAPA was a entry point for the NAP which the existing NAPA stakeholders and working groups need to be further strengthened and legalized in order to support medium and long term adaptation planning processes (addressing implementation strategy of the NAP)
  • 7. Moving from NAPA to NAP…cont 3. Political/high level coordinating body e.g. Inter- Ministerial Working Group (IMWG) needs to be reactivated and strengthened 4.

  • 8. 5. Enhancing the capacity of Climate Change Directorate (NDIEACC) to coordinate in developing national adaptation implementation strategy as well as monitoring and reviewing of the NAP 6. Enhancing capacity of the existing sectoral working group for mainstreaming cc adaptation into sectoral and local planning processes 7. Strengthening the capacity of experts from the Center for Climate Change and Biodiversity (CCCB) UNTL order to undertake vulnerability assessment and adaptation options as well as analyzing the current and future climate scenario for the NAP formulation at preparatory stage e.g. Expert training on: climate modeling and projection, and v&A methodologies Moving from NAPA to NAP…cont
  • 9. Moving from NAPA to NAP…cont 8. Enhancing the capacity of the CCCB in order to undertake data management and publication of best practices and lessons learnt from adaptation practices related to the NAP or research outreach 9. Enhancing the capacity of the GCF national Focal Point and creating a national designated Authority for GCF in order to facilitate and manage adaption fund for NAP implementation as well as creating country ownership by undertaking the direct access modality under this financial mechanism
