The NAP Global Network prepared this analytical report to provide insights into and practical examples of progress reporting with the intent to encourage its adoption as an integral part of countries’ NAP processes. Based on a review of NAP progress reports, this report analyzes various methods countries use to track their adaptation progress and highlights important lessons and good practices.
This report presents an analysis of how countries are advancing vertical integration in NAP processes. The findings are based on data collected through a review of NAP documents submitted to the UNFCCC’s NAP Central as of July 2023, and the recommendations are complemented with information gathered during the NAP Global Network Secretariat’s engagement with countries’ NAP teams.
At the 2024 UN Bonn Climate Change Conference, countries will initiate the assessment of the progress in the formulating and implementing their NAPs.
How do we know if National Adaptation Plans (NAP) are making a dent in reducing vulnerability? NAP progress reports play a critical role in assessing a country’s climate change preparedness and advising on next steps. They consolidate the information gathered from monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) activities and encourage countries to continuously learn, adapt, and improve on their climate change adaptation efforts.
Anne Hammill, Associate Vice-President, IISD, addresses the adaptation gaps from the latest IPCC Synthesis Report and highlights the critical role of the National Adaptation Plan.
While at the Bonn Climate Change Conference (SB 56), the NAP Global Network Secretariat launched a new synthesis report that highlights how developing countries continue to make progress in applying gender-responsive approaches to their national adaptation planning and actions.
This document is the third in a series of synthesis reports that assess progress on gender-responsive approaches in National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes at the global level. The progress shown in this report demonstrates the potential of NAP processes as a mechanism for ensuring that climate action addresses gender and social inequalities.
The National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) 2018-2022 sets out the path towards low carbon climate resilient development in a manner that prioritises adaptation. This second NCCAP implementation progress report covers progress made in the seven priority areas in the NCCAP namely disaster risk management; food and nutrition security; water and the blue economy; forestry, wildlife and tourism; health, sanitation and human settlements; manufacturing; and energy and transport.
The third Exchange of Experiences and Dialogue on the Preparation and Implementation of National Adaptation Plans of Latin American Countries took place, where ten representatives from five different countries met to learn more about the tools to assess climate risks and its links to gender equality.
National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes are the foundation for effective adaptation action. The UN reports that 120 developing countries have now launched NAP processes. This article collects stories from 12 countries that—led by national governments—reached milestones in their NAP processes in 2019 as part of the global effort to build resilience in a changing climate.
