VIAs are conducted to inform the objectives, focus and content of adaptation interventions and strategies, and many approaches, tools and methods now exist to guide this process.

Skills assessment for National Adaptation Planning

With mounting scientific evidence of the impacts of climate change and as public awareness of climate change has increased, more sophisticated capacity development approaches are being embraced. These can make better sense of the complex mix of institutional measures needed for adaptation planning to be successful backed by well-tailored and recurrent skills development.
 
This skills assessment framework is derived from experience acquired during a joint UNDP-UNITAR Global Water Partnership mission carried out in Niger in May 2014, under the NAP-GSP.
