Expert advice and targeted technical assistance for the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process

Version française / Version en español

The NAP Global Network’s activities are demand-driven and we strive to respond flexibly to support participants in addressing emerging NAP-related challenges and opportunities.

Since 2016, Network participants from developing countries have been using the Country Support Hub for free expert advice and short-term targeted technical support to advance the development and implementation of their NAP processes.

How It Works

The Country Support Hub (CSH) offers two kinds of short-term support:
