Livestock and fisheries sectors are pivotal in Somalia’s economy and food security. Both sectors are severely threatened by climate change impacts, which can also undermine the country’s peacebuilding efforts. With support from the NAP Global Network’s In-country Support Program, Somalia achieved an important milestone in its National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process by validating a national-level vulnerability assessment (VA) and a monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) framework for both fisheries and livestock sectors.
FIVE YEARS after waving goodbye to Jamaica’s Climate Change Division, Dr Orville Grey has paved a path to the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Global Network in Canada, where he looks to amplify his contribution to global efforts to combat the climate crisis.
FORMER CLIMATE change negotiator for Jamaica, Dr Orville Grey, has noted the value of the current global stocktake (GST) of climate actions, while emphasising the need for greater efforts at scaled-up adaptation.
Still, Grey, who is the new Head of Secretariat for the NAP Global Network, said “the transition from planning to implementation remain slow, uneven, and incremental, and there is only modest progress on adaptation and risk management”.
