The United Nations Development Programme is supporting the Government of Papua New Guinea to develop its first National Adaption Plan to fight the impacts of climate change.
Fifty-five participants from national, provincial and district levels attended a National Adaptation Plan (NAP) inception workshop in Port Moresby on Thursday, 16 July. The workshop aimed to present the project and review and validate proposed the project activities.
The 18-month project aims to reduce Papua New Guinea’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. It achieves this by focusing on strengthening a mechanism for multi-sectoral coordination at various levels of government to integrate climate risks in development planning and establishing a financing framework for climate adaptation for the medium to long-term.
