During one of the session

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.
