Risk-based national adaptation plan (Risk NAP)
As of: May 2018
Objective and activities
The project aims to support Thailand in developing and implementing a National Adaptation Plan (NAP). Firstly, future climate risks and the associated economic and business costs will be quantified and then evaluated with reference to the co-benefits of various adaptation scenarios. This information will be drawn on to develop an NAP and a monitoring and evaluation system. Using a manual on risk-based management strategies in urban planning, the project will help draft municipal adaptation plans and targeted adaptation measures in pilot cities. Support will be provided for establishing a corresponding financing mechanism.
State of implementation/results
- The project supports the strategic orientation of the NAPs and the integration of climate adaptation into the planning processes of the health, tourism and settlement planning sectors and development planning in four pilot regions.
- To support the NAP revision process the project carried out a series of trainings and workshops especially in the areas of health, tourism and settlement planning. The links between the impacts of climate change and the development of the sectors were examined and international approaches for problem solving and priority measures for the further support until project end identified.
