Description:

The document represent a supplementary sectorial guidelines for the development of National Adaptation Plan (NAP) for agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The document would support: 

  • National planners and decision-makers working on climate change to better understand the need and opportunities for adaptation in the agricultural sectors
  • Authorities and experts within the agricultural sectors who are already contributing to climate change adaptation and NAP formulation.

The development of these guidelines involved 15 Countries and 20 international agencies, the UNFCCC and the LEG. The guidelines describe the following steps to be addressed for the NAP development:

  1. laying the groundwork and addressing gaps;
  2. preparatory elements;
  3. implementation strategies;
  4. reporting, monitoring and review.

Within each element, various possible steps related to the agricultural sectors are outlined.
