Accelerating adaptation action through NDCs and the NAP process

Accelerating adaptation action through NDCs and the NAP process

Continuing Ricardo’s NDC webinar series, this webinar presents next steps for NDC implementation with a particular focus on adaptation. It recaps on how adaptation is included in the Paris Agreement and NDCs, and explore the potential links between NDCs and the process to formulate and implement national adaptation plans (NAPs). We explain how the NAP process can be used to facilitate efforts to implement the adaptation components of NDCs, and vice versa, and provide practical advice on the next steps to accelerate action.

The complimentary webinar is co-hosted by Ricardo Energy & Environment and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
