UNDP, FAO report highlights integration of agriculture into NAPs by Adam Fishman December 11,2018   |  Source: IISD

The UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) have released a publication that highlights nine key achievements of the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) Programme from 2015 to 2018.

Underscoring that country ownership is key to building resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards, the report notes that NAP-Ag has enabled climate change adaptation-informed planning and budgeting in the agriculture sectors of 11 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The Governments of Kenya, the Philippines, Thailand and Uganda, it highlights, adopted national strategic frameworks on climate change, agriculture and development in 2017 and 2018. NAP-Ag is now supporting implementation and mainstreaming of the frameworks into and across related policies in the countries.

Guidance materials developed for policymakers and practitioners connect a variety of aspects relating to adaptation planning, including cost-benefit analysis, impact evaluation and monitoring. The publication points to NAP-Ag’s successes helping countries access additional pools of climate finance for adaptation work in the agricultural sector, including from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and other multilateral sources.
