While there is no single approach to integrating adaptation considerations into sector planning, concrete examples are emerging as more countries pursue National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes. South-South sharing of experiences through the NAP Global Network has shown that, in the early stages of NAP processes, the impetus for sector integration can be found in different ministries and at different levels depending on the country context.
A spectrum of approaches to initiating sector integration of adaptation emerged, ranging from sector-driven to nationally driven approaches. Building on an earlier overview brief, this sNAPshot takes a closer look at how the Philippines initiated sectoral integration of adaptation considerations, and how this compares with approaches that other countries are taking.
