Supporting Benin to advance their NAP Process

Project Overview

Status of assistance to Benin for their NAP process:

A NAP-GSP publication 'NAP in focus: Lessons from Benin' has been prepared in collaboration with the Government of Benin.

Benin has received support for their NAP process, as part of a UNDP mission to move their NAP process forward and launch the GCF Readiness Programme.
 
An Inception Workshop for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness Programme in Benin took place in March 2016 with over 70 participants. It was led by the Minister in charge of Climate Change, Mr.Theophilus C. Worou, and the Director General of Climate Change, Mr. Ibila Djibril. The workshop was also supported by UNDP, UN Environment and NAP-GSP.
 
The UNDP team also held several consultations in Benin with government organizations and international partners to develop a work plan to execute NAP-related components in the GCF Readiness Programme. 
 
A Government delegation from Benin attended the NAP-GSP / PAG-PNA Africa Regional Training Workshop in April 2014. A mission to Benin was conducted in October 2013 by UN Environment, in which NAP support was discussed.
