Organizer(s): LEG, NAP Global Network | Tuesday, April 9, 2019
This session explored how alignment of country-level policy processes (e.g., NAP processes, disaster risk reduction strategies, national development plans) under these global agendas can help increase coherence, efficiency and effectiveness to advance climate-resilient development. It highlighted convergence of the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework and the 2030 Agenda in relation to strengthening resilience, building adaptive capacity, and reducing vulnerability to climate change and disasters. It also showcased how mapping agendas and in-country policy processes among international agencies, national commitments to international agendas and operational vehicles can contribute to climate-resilient development. As the NAP process is iterative and explicitly aims to integrate climate change adaptation in development processes, it provides important opportunities to advance climate-resilient development, thereby contributing to objectives under multiple agendas. This session also identified key enablers for alignment, such as institutional arrangements, capacity development and information sharing.
