Peer Learning Summit: Engaging the Private Sector in National Adaptation Planning Processes

Adapting to the impacts of climate change, whether at the national, sub-national or community level, is not the responsibility of national governments alone. Businesses and investors also need to be involved in NAP processes, as they are the key engines of economic growth in developing countries, accounting for 60 per cent of gross domestic product, 80 per cent of capital flows and 90 per cent of jobs.

This Peer Learning Summit will bring together developing country representatives, climate support initiatives, and bilateral donors to facilitate sustained South-South peer learning and exchange on how countries can engage the private sector in their NAP processes, with a focus on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the agriculture and tourism sectors.
