The NAPs process was established under the Cancun Adaptation Framework (2010) in order to prepare countries for addressing climate risk in the medium term. The process is intended to be continuous, progressive and iterative. NAPs require building a stronger evidence base, improving skills and capacity and adopting learning by doing approaches. NAPs need to be country-driven, gender-sensitive, participatory and use transparent approaches.
Financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), the joint UNDP-UNEP NAP-Global Support Programme (NAP-GSP) and its partners and collaborators are assisting countries to identify technical, institutional and financial needs to integrate climate change adaptation into ongoing medium and long-term national planning. The partner agencies of the NAP-GSP are the FAO, GIZ, GWP, IFAD, PROVIA, WHO, UNFCCC, UNISDR and UNITAR. The GSP is one of a number of initiatives in place to support Countries to advance their NAP process.
In addition, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) are working together on the project Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans programme ("NAP-Ag") with ministries of Agriculture, Environment, Planning and Finance, and key national stakeholders in Nepal, Kenya, the Philippines, Thailand, Uganda, Uruguay, Viet Nam, Zambia, Guatemala, Colombia, and The Gambia to incorporate agricultural sectors into National Adaptation Plans (NAPS) processes. In doing so, the programme aims to safeguard livelihoods, raise agricultural production and boost food security. In all target countries, agricultural sectors, including forestry and fisheries, have been identified as the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, but also key to ensuring food security and reducing poverty. The programme is funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
Against this background, the consultant will provide support to countries formulate and advance their national adaptation plans, and technical assistance to implement the NAP-Ag Programme.
