Supporting Indonesia to advance their NAP process

NAP-GSP support to Indonesia

In response to a request from the Government of Indonesia in 2017, Indonesia received supported from the NAP-GSP with a stock-taking exercise to identify gaps and needs to advance the NAP process as well as key areas for adaptation planning through the enhancement of its National Action Plan for Climate Change Adaptation (RAN-API).

The stocktaking looked at areas for enhancing tracking and monitoring, improving the vulnerability assessment process in adaptation, and enhancing the integration of climate change adaptation into national planning and budgeting processes.   Based on this support, Indonesia is developing a funding proposal to access international climate finance.

Supporting Uruguay to advance their NAP process

  • A GCF-financed project has been launched to support the Government of Uruguay to advance its National Adaptation Planning process in cities and local governments (NAP-Cities). The objectives of the National Adaptation Planning process are to:  Reduce vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, by building adaptive capacity and resilience in cities, infrastructures and urban environments; and to facilitate the integration of climate change adaptation, in a coherent manner, into relevant new and existing policies, programmes and activities, in particular development planning processes and strategies that apply to cities and local planning. The project will be implemented by the Ministry of Housing, Territorial Planning and Environment (MVOTMA).
  • A country briefing 'National Adaptation Plans in focus: Lessons from Uruguay' has been published. This briefing on the process to formulate and implement the National Adaptation Plan in Uruguay considers firstly the country context and the climate change risks. The groundwork for supporting the NAP is considered, covering the policy, planning and bugetary framework, priority adaptation sectors in NDC, climate assessments, the implementation of adaptation actions and plans thus far. The briefing contains a timeline of the Uruguay NAP process. Challenges, successes and opportunities are also discussed.
  • A NAP-GSP mission was deployed to Uruguay from 14-23 October 2016, to support a NAP workshop.
  • The workshop identified strategic goals for the NAP process, and the activities and processes to serve as entry points for climate change adaptation integration. 
  • Stakeholders gained a shared understanding of their own current capacities and needs around climate change adaptation to help inform decisions on developing a NAP process.
  • An indicative roadmap for development of NAP process was produced.

Supporting Peru to advance their NAP process

  • NAP-GSP and UNDP have provided technical assistance to Peru to advance their NAP process, by working closely with the Ministry of Environment to advise them on the development of the NAP roadmap.
  • NAP-GSP has also provided an overview of the UNFCCC guidelines for NAP, and shared experiences of other countries supported by NAP-GSP to a multi-stakeholder working group during a support mission in April 2016.
  • As part of the NAP support mission to Peru, the NAP-GSP team met with the core team from the Ministry of Environment to review adaptation advances and develop a NAP roadmap. In addition, support was provided during a one day meeting of the multi-stakeholder NAP group.
  • The Ministry of Environment is leading the process to advance the NAP in Peru, together with the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Ministry of Production (Agriculture and Fisheries), Ministry of Health, the National Statistics Institute, the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations, Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion, the Geophysics Institute, and various other institutions including private sector.
  • The focus of the NAP process is multisectoral. An initial stocktaking was done in the preparation for the 3rd National Communication on Climate Change, but Peru is seeking support and guidance on how to further advance the NAP purposes.
  • The NAP for Peru will build upon the National Strategy on Climate Change which was revised in 2015. This states the objective that economic agents and populations increase their awareness and adaptive capacity to the adverse impacts and the opportunities of climate change.
  • The NAP (and the National Strategy) also build on the following key strategies and documents:
    • The Plan for Disaster Risk Management and CCA in the Agricultural Sector 2012 – 2021
    • Regional strategies for Climate Change – based on the Law for Regional Governments. These strategies identify vulnerable sectors and areas in each of Peru's regions (provinces) and contain actions to reduce impacts of climate change.
    • National Plan for Disaster Risk Management
    • 3rd National Communication on Climate Change
    • The INDC - the  NAP will be the main instrument to implement INDC.
      The INDC adaptation component was developed after a review of the vulnerabilities and adaptation priorities of the country, and based on the study of the national goals established by various national planning documents (Bicentennial Plan, National Plan for Disaster Risk Management - PLANAGERD, Environmental Action Plan - PLANAA, Environment Agenda 2014) and sectoral planning documents (PLANGRACC-A11, Budget Programs, Integral Plan of Mitigation and Adaptation to the effects of Climate Change on Public Health, among others). The adaptation component is formulated for different sectors and prioritized systems.

Supporting Ghana to advance their NAP process

The Government of Ghana has developed an extensive list of climate change action programs to implement over the 2015-2020 timeframe. The government is identifying high priority programs based on systematic and robust cost-benefit analysis (CBA). 

To support this process of adaptation prioritisation, a cost-benefit of adaptation training was provided by UNDP at the request of the Government of Ghana as a part of the NAP-GSP programme in October 2016. The workshop was led by NDPC in close collaboration with MESTI and EPA, and Ministry of Finance. The aim of the training was to provide not only theoretical understanding but also practical applications in climate change adaptation through presentations, discussion, and case studies to target participants some of whom could potentially become future trainers themselves.
 
Ghana-focused case studies were designed according to Ghana’s priority areas and used throughout the workshop. These priority areas were identified based on the broad base consultation and consensus building.
 
The programme team is linking with the UNDP-UN Environment-WRI supported Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Program in Ghana, and work has been initiated to identify potential entry points for NAP support in the country.

Ghana CBA Workshop

A CBA Training Workshop was provided by NAP-GSP at the request of the Government of Ghana. The Training aimed to provide not only theoretical understanding of CBA but also practical CBA applications in climate change adaptation through presentations, discussion, and case studies to target participants some of whom could potentially become future trainers themselves.
 
Ghana focused case studies were designed according to Ghana’s priority areas and used throughout the workshop. These priority areas were identified based on the broad base consultation and consensus building. The workshop was led by NDPC in close collaboration with MESTI and EPA and Ministry of Finance. Participating organisations were National Development Planning Commission (NDPC); Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology, and Innovation (MESTI), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), UNFCCC Focal Point, and Ministry of Finance (Ghana’s National Designated Authority, NDA). The joint UNDP-UNEP NAP-Global Support Programme is linking with the UNDP-UNEP-WRI supported Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Program in Ghana, and work has been initiated to identify potential entry points for NAP support in the country.
 

Output/Deliverables:

The Ghana focused four-day CBA workshop was successfully delivered together with facilitation services, presentations and customized exercises. The CBA workshop was delivered using discussion and case-study/exercise approach to enhance interactive learning of the participants. Ghana focused as well as international cases/exercises were prepared and used at a group discussion through out the workshop. Before the training, most participants had very limited knowledge of CBA and how it can be applied to guide decision making especially at the project level. After the training, most participants reported that their levels of understanding of various aspects of CAB including practical exercise in going through the 8-step approach in performing a CBA.
