Submission by UNDP in response to the call for submissions to the upcoming session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation on the issue of National Adaptation Plans under the mandate of Decision 3/CP.26, para 3(a)

While much progress has been made since the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process was established in 2010, the most vulnerable communities need significant technical and financial support to accelerate their adaptation efforts, including through the NAP process, to reduce their exposure to climate risks and vulnerabilities and enhance overall adaptive capacity.  At the time of UNDP's submission of this paper, 53 countries have submitted their NAPs to the UNFCCC. This represents only 37% of the 142 developing country parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). UNDP has provided technical support to 32 of the NAPs that have been submitted and is continuing to support other least developed and developing countries to increase the number of submissions.

Resource Type

  • Plans and policies of relevance to NAPs for Least Developed Countries (LDCs)
