Response to Independent Final Evaluation of the United States Department of State Support for the NAP Global Network

The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Global Network commissioned an external review of its 2015–2020 Work Program funded by the U.S. Department of State. The review took place from May to September 2020 and was led by Baastel, an independent consultancy based in Belgium, engaged through a competitive procurement process. The Executive Summary is available here.

The NAP Global Network has grown in size and scope, reaching over 40 countries with direct technical support, over 350 people from over 50 countries with peer-learning opportunities, and thousands of adaptation stakeholders with a wide range of knowledge products on adaptation planning. But there is much more to do.

As we look toward 2025 with the goal of reaching more countries and adaptation stakeholders, we know it is important to take stock of what is working, what is missing, and what needs to be adjusted, and then seize all opportunities to maximize our impact.

The NAP Global Network Secretariat welcomes Baastel’s findings and created this document to showcase how the evaluation’s recommendations will be addressed.
