Projects

Sudan National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

Climate change poses significant challenges to a developing country like Sudan, the largest in Africa.

Bhutan National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

The Bhutan NAPA preparation has been a timely opportunity to look at the country’s climate change related vulnerabilities in its unique geographical setting. Nestled among the highest mountainous regions of the globe, Bhutan has enjoyed political peace, stability and development progress for the last 100 years, but the process objectively showed how highly vulnerable the country is to effects of climate change given its fragile mountain eco-systems, high dependency on monsoon rains, and the ever present threats of Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) from its northern mountain ranges.

Burkina Faso National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

National adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change; those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage. The following NAPA details priority threats and priorities for Burkina Faso.

Climate Related Hazards:

  • Strong decrease in water availability
  • A drastic decrease and a deterioration of pastures
  • Decrease of the biomass potential

Timor-Leste National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

The overarching vision set out in the NAPA is to make the Timorese people more resilient to climate change, recognizing their high vulnerability in an economy that is dominated by subsistence agriculture. Adaptation measures will be focused on reducing the adverse effects of climate change and promote sustainable development.

Togo National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

According to the Togo's National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA), the country’s economy depends on the agriculture (mainly coffee, cocoa, and cotton). Agriculture activity represents about 40% of GDP (comprises 50% of the country’s export earnings) and employs 70% of the population. Togo's climate varies from tropical to savanna. The main climate risks facing Togo are violent winds, coastal erosion, poor distribution of rain, and late rains, with flooding and drought remaining the greatest threats.

Vanuatu National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

In Vanuatu climate change is likely to impact all sectors especially agriculture, water, coastal and marine resources and infrastructure as well as tourism. The major climate change concerns of Vanuatu presented in the NAPA are projected sea level rise, sea temperature rise and the possible increase in cyclones and other major storm events. Agriculture is entirely rain-fed and is susceptible to changes in rainfall distribution. Intense and prolonged rainfall could damage seedlings, result in greater run-off and soil erosion and encourage conditions that promote pests and diseases.

Zambia National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

Zambia has experienced a number of climatic hazards over several decades. The most serious have been drought, seasonal floods and flush floods, extreme temperatures and dry spells. Some of these, especially droughts and floods have increased in frequency, intensity and magnitude over the last two decades and have adversely impacted on food and water security, water quality, energy and the sustainable livelihoods of rural communities.

Yemen National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)

Yemen is highly vulnerable to climate change-related impacts such as drought, extreme flooding, pests, sudden disease outbreaks, changes of rainfall patterns, increased storm frequency/severity and sea level rise. These are serious concerns as Yemen's economy largely depends on its rural natural resources. Moreover, more than 75% of the population is rural-based engaged in farming and pastoralism and hence highly reliant on favorable climatic conditions for their livelihoods. Yemen's NAPA identifies priority sectors and establishes target projects for climate change adaptation.

Solomon Islands National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)
