NAP-Ag programme highlights 2015-2018

Issue paper

The joint UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme  (NAP-Ag) is a multi-year initiative (2015-2018) funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). The NAP-Ag is supporting countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to identify and integrate climate change adaptation measures in to relevant national planning and budgeting processes. This integration will help to enhance institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the agriculture sectors and facilitate greater partnerships, including between ministries of agriculture, environment, planning and finance, and other national partners.  NAP-Ag provides support to countries for accessing climate finance through international mechanisms, such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF), bilate ral and multilateral funding mechanisms, as well as national financing. The programme contributes to NAPs and 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 resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters.
