NAP Global Network - Addressing agricultural resilience in long term climate planning instruments


Published on

The landscape of climate planning instruments available to countries under the UNFCCC process includes National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Long Term Strategies (LTS). These instruments have emerged at different milestones such as the Cancun Adaptation Framework and the Paris Agreement and have specific characteristics and objectives which can contribute to and reinforce each other if leveraged effectively. Despite their very distinctive nature, these national instruments can be harnessed to scale up climate change adaptation by fostering linkages depending upon country context.

Addressing climate resilience in sectors and across sectors is a vital part of climate planning. Adaptation in agriculture is a crucial component of building resilient economies and societies and is national priority for a significant number of countries. It is well established that agricultural sectors are amongst the most climate sensitive. Over 90 percent of developing countries’ NDCs refer to agriculture as a major priority.

The juxtaposition of the range of climate planning instruments on one hand, and the sensitivity of agriculture on the other requires that all instruments be linked, sequenced and aligned appropriately by countries to best fit their national circumstances.

The webinar will draw upon country-level experiences from NAP-Ag partner countries to highlight entry points for alignment and strategies to trigger this conversation.

Webinar highlights

Unpacking the characteristics of NAPs, NDCs and LTS.
Exploring steps being taken by ministries of agriculture, ministries of environment, water and finance to leverage these instruments to scale up climate adaptation in agriculture.
Identifying what linkages are already being fostered between NAPs, NDCs and LTS and the key considerations in advancing climate change adaptation in agriculture.

NAP Global Network - Addressing agricultural resilience in long term climate planning instruments

  1. 1. Webinar: “Addressing agricultural resilience in long term climate planning instruments” November 20th, 2018 Anika Terton, NAP Global Network
  2. 2. Countries  Thailand  Philippines  Nepal  Vietnam  Sri Lanka  Malawi  Togo  Benin  Burkina Faso  Ethiopia  Kenya  Colombia  Jamaica  Brazil  Morocco  Uganda Institutions  NAP Global Network Secretariat (International Institute for Sustainable Development)  NAP Global Support Program (NAP- GSP)  Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)  Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)  NDC Partnership
  3. 3. PEER LEARNING SUMMIT - KEY MESSAGES • Both processes can be mutually reinforcing, provide an opportunity to share lessons learned and offer opportunities for improved and enhanced coordination of actions and avoid duplication (often the NAP process and NDC are coordinated from within the same ministry). • Participants identified a strong need for building and enhancing understanding of the NAP and NDC process within the government and among key stakeholders. • The is a need to strengthen the existing coordination mechanisms for effective formulation and implementation of the NAP as well implementation of the NDC • Linking the NAP process with the NDC provides opportunities to communicate and mainstream high-level adaptation goals and objectives at the national with the sub-national and local level. • Various stakeholders are involved in both processes, but they do not necessarily share the same views on mitigation and adaptation. • Strong desire for the development of (technical) guidelines on how to best align different processes under global agendas (including a road map)
  4. 4. What are the challenges of linking the NAP process and NDC? • Political: Who’s involved and driving the processes • Institutional: Parallel structures, who’s responsible for NDC vs NAP • Timing: broader national policy context • Coordination fatigue • Waiting for guidance on Adaptation Communications
  5. 5. What are the opportunities of linking the NAP process and NDC? • Leverage and build upon what is already there: NAP can inform NDC, NDC can inform NAP • Streamline, coordinate, avoid duplication • Communicate a country’s adaptation priorities effectively nationally and internationally • Raise the profile of adaptation – for political support, resourcing, explore AD-MIT links • Efficient use of climate finance
