New report highlights lessons from the National Adaptation Planning processes (CCAFS)

Are countries well prepared to deal with climate change in agriculture ? A new report on National Adaptation Planning (NAP) in agriculture examines progress in 12 countries

Climate change will have far-reaching consequences for every aspect of our lives, from the environment we live in, the pests and diseases we face, the industries we work in, the infrastructure we depend on—roads, power stations and electricity networks and the like—to the crops we can grow and the livestock we can raise.

With so many areas needing attention, in 2010 the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) introduced the national adaptation plan process to encourage integrated cross-sectoral planning for climate-change adaptation. National adaptation plans (NAPs) are intended as a means to address the most urgent medium- to long-term food security, livelihood and development pressures related to adaptation to climate change.

A new report from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) examines progress in developing NAPs in 12 countries in West and East Africa and South Asia, with a particular focus on agricultural and food security aspects. Planning climate change adaptation in agriculture : Meta-synthesis of national adaptation plans in West and East Africa and South Asia also presents a framework for assessing national adaptation planning processes that gives a ’dashboard’ view of country progress on key NAP processes and policy elements.
