Advancing National Adaptation Plans
The NAP Expo is an outreach event organized by the Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) under the UNFCCC, in collaboration with various bodies and organizations, to promote exchange of experiences and foster partnerships between a wide range of actors and stakeholders on how to advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).
This is the fifth NAP Expo since 2013, organized by the UNFCCC and the LDC Expert Group. It expects to bring in participants from all over the the globe including Parties and Non-Party Stakeholders. It is also open for collaboration with interested agencies and organizations that are active on providing support for advancing National Adaptation Plan.
The overall objective of the NAP Expo is to advance the formulation and implementation of NAPs by serving as a forum where different countries, organizations and other relevant actors can interact and exchange experiences on NAPs. Specific objectives include the following:
(a) To update stakeholders on the latest guidance on the technical and financial aspects to advance the formulation and implementation of NAPs;
(b) To discuss country experiences, best practices, lessons learned, gaps and needs and information on support provided and received in relation to the process to formulate and implement NAPs;
(c) To offer a platform for countries to interact with the GCF and others providing support for NAPs, as a means to improve access to financing for NAPs.
