Bringing agriculture to the table

The Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) programme, coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), aims to address climate change adaptation concerns related to the agriculture sectors in 11 developing countries' existing national planning and budgeting processes. The initiative will also improve these countries' prospects of accessing climate finance through such as the Global Environment Facility and the Green Climate Fund.

In addition, the NAP-Ag Programme will contribute to the achievement of targets laid out in partner countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in particular SDG-2 “Zero Hunger” and SDG-13 “Climate Action” by strengthening the resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries and by integrating climate change measures into national, policies, strategies and planning.
