With financing from the Green Climate Fund, the "National Adaptation Plan (NAP) to advance medium and long-term adaptation planning in Armenia" project (the Project) supports the Government of Armenia to foster the process of the national planning for climate change adaptation (CCA) through an iterative process focused on strengthening foundational capacities to ensure that they are institutionalized for long-term sustainability. The Project aims to address existing barriers, support the prioritization of climate change adaptation investments in six priority sectors (water resources, agriculture, energy, health, tourism and human settlement) and two regions of Armenia, develop adaptation plans, and increase the identification of associated finance options.

As part of the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the NAP process will contribute to the formulation of corresponding national climate-responsive indicators and targets.
