The Integrating Agriculture in NAPs Programme supports partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agricultural sector into relevant national planning and budgeting processes. It is a multi-year initiative funded by the German Government that responds to country driven needs. This integration will help to enhance:
  • institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the sector.
  • access to international climate finance sources such as GEF and Green Climate Fund.
  • more strategic allocations of national budgets earmarked for adaptation investments.

Session Recordings and PowerPoints Now Available. The NAP-Ag Webinar on 'Addressing agriculture, forestry and fisheries in National Adaptation Plans' provided insight on climate change adaptation in the livestock and forestry sector, also highlighting key elements in addressing the agriculture sectors in National Adaptation Plans, and looking forward to how these plans will contribute to NDCs, SDGs and links to other global accords such as the Sendai Framework.

NAP-Ag Webinar

Addressing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in National Adaptation Plans
The webinar aims to provide participants with insight on climate change adaptation in the agriculture sectors (crops and livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquacultures) and provide guidance on how to address agriculture in the formulation and implementation of NAPs.

From silos to synergies

Forging partnerships to catalyse synergies between adaptation, mitigation and SDG plans
Building resiliency to the effects of climate change and transforming economies toward low-carbon development requires integrated, cross-cutting solutions. In this way, a new paradigm is emerging toward addressing multiple risks and delivering co-benefits across climate and non-climate drivers. This will entail connecting climate action to long-term sustainable development planning, financing and budgeting.

New guidelines help member states achieve their climate pledges

FAO has developed supplementary guidelines to the UNFCCC NAP Guidelines for "Addressing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag Guidelines)" aiming to support developing countries in making sure agriculture is both included in national adaptation plans and made more adaptive and resilient. They serve to help vulnerable countries access funding - in particular from the Green Climate Fund Readiness Programme - while at the same time promoting broad participation in the decision-making process and building needed technical capacities.

Building Institutional Capacity in Thailand to Design and Implement Climate Programs

A centerpiece of the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag) in Thailand is its support to develop a new five-year Strategy on Climate Change in Agriculture (2017-2021). This is spearheaded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) and its Office of Agriculture Economics (OAE). The strategy was unveiled after a series of meetings by a Technical Working Group at a three-day workshop held on 23-25 November 2016 in Bangkok, organized by UNDP.

Building capacity to advance National Adaptation Plan In Viet Nam

This two-day workshop supported the Government of Viet Nam in building the necessary capacity to advance its National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process. The workshop closely focused on building National Adaptation Plans in the agricultural sector through multi-stakeholder collaboration, and increased knowledge and capacity on a number of topics including: prioritization of adaptation options, cost-benefit analysis, overview of the broad-based nature of climate change adaption impacts, analysis of challenges, and creation of an open discussion with key stakeholders on defining a road-map for the NAP process.
