PR 9.4 The NAP process: opportunities and challenges for climate resilient development

Thursday 12 May, 11.00 – 12.45, Diamond Room II

The Paris Agreement requires all parties, “as appropriate,” to engage in adaptation planning processes and the implementation of actions. The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process under UNFCCC is meant to help countries reduce vulnerability, build adaptive capacity and mainstream adaptation into development planning. This session will bring together country-level experts and practitioners, development agencies, scientists and others to share their experiences of the NAP process and mainstreaming adaptation. Following case studies of Thailand and Togo and a panel of country-level representatives from various NAP processes, participants will be invited to share experiences and identify solutions and tools to overcome challenges and take advantage of opportunities in achieving climate resilient development.
