This year, the world reached record-high temperatures and experienced devastating climate-related catastrophes. While concerns for our planet and its people increase, it’s also important to recognize the dedication and progress that countries are making in their plans to adapt to extreme weather events and other climate change impacts.
The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP27) took place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, in November 2022 to build on the previous year’s commitments, accelerate global climate action, increase climate financing, and scale up adaptation efforts.
Members of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Global Network Secretariat were at the centre of the action: engaging with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes, connecting with country representatives, and highlighting our resources and support.
The NAP Global Network’s engagements at COP27 focused on these topics:
- The shift from planning to implementation in the NAP process
- Monitoring, evaluation, and learning for adaptation as part of the NAP process
- Gender-responsive and socially inclusive NAP processes
- Vertical integration in the NAP process
The NAP Global Network Secretariat team engaged in discussions around the Global Stocktake and the Global Goal on Adaptation, as well as tracking adaptation-related negotiation items with a view of highlighting opportunities to make links to NAP processes.
