Currently, there is no comprehensive framework for climate change adaptation in Armenia, though the NDC and the National Communications provide a preliminary assessment of adaptation priorities. To address this gap, the project aims to support Armenia with developing a national plan for climate change adaptation (CCA) that is iterative. The focus of this initiative is on the process and on strengthening foundational capacities to ensure that they are institutionalized for long-term sustainability. The project aims (i) to address the barriers identified during the stocktaking exercise underpinning this proposal, as presented below; (ii) to support the prioritization of adaptation options and investments in six priority sectors; and (iii) to support the identification of financing options for the implementation of the prioritized adaptation options identified throughout this project.
With the development of a NAP process, Armenia will lay the groundwork for the systemic and iterative identification of medium- and long-term climate-induced risks, CCA priorities, and specific activities that promote climate adaptive and resilient growth in its key sectors. Concurrently, 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.
