Addressing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in National Adaptation Plans

Guideline

These supplementary guidelines to the UNFCCC NAP Guidelines for "Addressing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag Guidelines)" aim to support developing countries in making sure agriculture is both included in national adaptation plans and made more adaptive and resilient to climate change. 

The Guidelines aim to support developing countries in:

  • reducing vulnerability of the agriculture sectors to theimpacts of climate change by building adaptive capacities and resilience;
  • addressing agriculture in the formulation and implementation of NAPs; and
  • enhancing the integration of adaptation in agricultural development policies, programmes and plans.

Chapter One provides background information on NAP formulation and implementation processes.

Chapter Two focuses on technical issues related to climate change, food security, nutrition and the agriculture sectors and gives an overview of the impact of climate change on the agriculture sectors and food security. Key issues are covered in this chapter and in Annex 1, and suggestions are provided for further technical information.
