In 2014, Zimbabwe crafted a National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) and completed the National Climate Policy in 2017 in which climate change adaptation is treated as a national priority. The next step is to ensure the integration of climate change adaptation in national, provincial and district-level development planning processes. To enable a systematic approach to this planning process, Zimbabwe decided to follow the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process as provided for by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to be guided by a clear roadmap.
The objective of the NAP Roadmap is to identify key activities that will realize the country’s NAP, their timelines, possible key milestones to note during project implementation as well as key actors responsible for their delivery.
Based on this roadmap, with support from the Green Climate Fund, Zimbabwe will in the years 2019 to 2021 clearly define its climate change adaptation agenda and mainstream climate change into development planning.
The NAP Roadmap for Zimbabwe was developed through the support of the NAP Global Network’s Country Support Hub.
