Expansion of best-practice NAPA development and implementation to other countries
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. Use well-developed, up-to-date NAPAs (National Adaptation Program of Action) and the accompanying processes as a basis for presenting project portfolios and adaptation-relevant background data. Non-LDCs could benefit from the development and implementation of adaptation plans and strategies as outlined in well-prepared NAPAs, combined with an underlying NAPA development process. This will provide tools to describe climate-change impacts and implement proposed adaptation measures.
