UNFCCC Adaptation
Posted on: 2/17/2024 - Updated on: 4/15/2024



Several developing countries that have embarked on the process to formulate and implement NAPs have identified gaps and needs to effectively conduct the process in their country, in particular support needs. They have communicated a need for adequate adaptation finance, for capacity-building and technical support, for identifying and transferring technologies for adaptation, and for opportunities to share knowledge and information. In an attempt to address those needs, various support windows have been created both under and outside the Convention.

In this publication, the Adaptation Committee seeks to highlight the state of play of available support for the process to formulate and implement NAPs, as of October 2015. The publication focuses on institutions and agencies providing financial, technical and institutional capacitybuilding and technological support, as well as those offering knowledge hubs and platforms. It also provides points of contact and sources where additional information can be obtained.
