In reaction to the inevitable impacts of climate change on the national economy and as obliged by its commitment to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Government of Botswana (GoB) recognizes the need to treat climate change adaptation as a development issue and integrate it into its development planning process. This National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Framework was therefore developed to comprehensively address adaptation and ensure its holistic mainstreaming.
The NAP Framework is a strategic document that provides guidance to the design and implementation of the NAP process. It represents the next stage in the development of Botswana’s NAP, following the Botswana Climate Change Response Policy draft of 2016.
Furthermore, it highlights potential institutional arrangements based on existing governmental structures that will enhance the coordination of efforts through vertical and horizontal integration during the implementation of NAP processes.
