The project entitled Strengthening Nigeria’s Capacity to Advance the NAP Process will be implemented by a small project team headed by a National Coordinator.
The new NAP project will support multi-sectoral, medium- to long-term adaptation planning and budgeting in Nigeria and promote the integration of climate change adaptation aspects into development planning processes and policies.
Systems for developing and sharing climate risk and vulnerability information will be reinforced, and sustainable financing mechanisms for climate change adaptation initiatives are set to be developed.
The Paris Agreement (2015) in its global goal on adaptation (Article 7) brought new elements and dimension to the climate change adaptation.
Namely, enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change. with a view to contributing to sustainable development and ensuring an adequate adaptation response in the context of the global temperature limit of less than 2 C.
The UNFCCC’s Least Developed Expert Group (LEG) on adaptation released Guidelines for National Adaptation Plans (December 2012).
Furthermore, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) has issued guidance on adaptation planning approaches.
