Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAPs)


FAO and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are joining forces to support countries as they integrate their agriculture sectors in the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) process through the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme. The main goal is to support partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agriculture sectors into relevant national planning and budgeting processes.

The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme initially targets eight countries: Kenya, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand, Uganda, Uruguay, Vietnam and Zambia. However, there are plans to expand the support to other countries in the Pacific, Asia, Africa as well as Latin America and the Caribbean. 

FAO support includes:

  • developing an integrated adaptation approach and roadmap 
  • supporting key stakeholders in the process, in particular Ministries of Agriculture
  • defining a baseline on adaptation and identifying climate change knowledge gaps in the agriculture sector
  • developing and conducting capacity training
  • identifying climate finance for adaptation
