Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme

Objective and activities

The project to integrate agriculture in National Adaptation Plans will support partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agricultural sector into relevant national planning and budgeting processes. It will be a multi-year initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB) and respond to country driven needs. The integration will help to enhance:

  • institutional capacities and processes for operationalizing climate response strategies in the sector
  • access to international climate finance sources such as GEF and Green Climate Fund
  • more strategic allocations of national budgets earmarked for adaptation Investments
  • sharing of lessons learned and best practices on adaptation-related planning and budgeting processes

While the focus of the project is on the agricultural sector, including forestry and fisheries, the results and processes used are highly relevant to inform other sectors of good practices in integrating adaptation needs into national planning and budgeting.



State of implementation/results

Each of the eight countries that joined the programme in 2015 are implementing activities in collaboration with Ministries of Agriculture and Environment with the support of UNDP and FAO. Details of progress in each country can be found on the UNDP and FAO web-pages. Three new countries that have joined the programme in 2016 (Colombia, Gambia, Guatemala) are preparing their workplans for initiating activities. The programme has been instrumental in catalyzing global attention for climate change adaptation and agriculture, through global, regional and national forums.
