Good Practices for Developing Lebanon’s National Adaptation Plan

The Government of Lebanon is in the early stages of its NAP process. In preparing to launch work through a Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Program grant with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Ministry of Environment requested support from the NAP Global Network to prepare a review of good practices and lessons from 12 peer countries’ NAP processes. This briefing note shares highlights from that analysis.

The review focused on identifying lessons and insights from 12 countries chosen for their geographical and socio-economic similarities to Lebanon, such as their Mediterranean location, mountainous terrains, climate hazards, political and economic instability, development status, and cultural diversity. These countries included Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Chile, Costa Rica, Egypt, Kuwait, Moldova, Morocco, Palestine, and Turkey.
