The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Process: Frequently Asked Questions

The impacts of climate change are happening today and will continue to be felt over this century and beyond. Responding effectively to climate change requires urgently cutting our emissions as well as adapting to its impacts. The National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process is an important way that countries can build their resilience to these impacts.

At the NAP Global Network Secretariat, we are often asked—by a range of actors—to explain what a NAP is and why it is important. This document provides an overview of the NAP process and our answers to FAQs.
