Support for developing nations on NAPs unknown

Wealthy countries have committed to support developing nations in establishment of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).

NAPs are expected to identify long-term priorities for responding to challenges of climate change at country levels.

NaijaAgroNet gathered that all parties to the UN Framework convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) adopted the Cancun Adaptation Framework at the 2010 international climate negotiations in Mexico.

But, it was also gathered that the framework requires every nation to develop a National Plan of Action (NPA) that will identify medium and long term needs and priorities for adapting to climate change and outlining strategies as well as activities to address these.

Industry watchers anticipated that the NAPs of the developing nations would be funded by richer countries, although the ‘how’ of the funding is still unknown, as this would top agenda at the forthcoming UN negotiations in Durban, South Africa, between November 28 and December 9, 2011.
