Supporting Kazakhstan to advance their NAP process

Project Overview

  • On 14 July 2016, the Government of Kazakhstan requested support to develop a NAP, as a way to facilitate effective planning mitigation to climate change.
  • With support from UNDP and NAP-GSP, a preliminary mission was undertaken from 19-21 October 2016 to identify, in consultation with stakeholders, Kazakhstan’s needs regarding the NAP process.
  • The mission allowed for preliminary assessment of relevant initiatives on climate mainstreaming and of the institutional framework and capacities relevant to the NAP process through a stakeholder roundtable, qualitative interviews and an extensive desk review.
  • The mission also built on Kazakhstan’s participation in the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia Regional Workshop on the NAP Process, which was held on 28–30 June, 2016 in Chisinau, Moldova, supported by UNDP and NAP-GSP.
  • A Stocktaking Report and Preliminary Roadmap / Concept for Advancing the NAP Process in Kazakhstan have also been developed and shared with the various stakeholders for review and commenting.
