LEG regional training workshop on NAPs for Eastern and Southern Africa, in collaboration with the NAP Global Support Programme

Date: 23-27, February, 2015
Venue: Livingstone, Zambia



The Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) is conducting regional training workshops on national adaptation plans (NAPs) as part of its work programme for 2014–2015. The training workshops are designed to support countries to advance in their NAP process beyond the training conducted during previous regional training workshops. The workshops are designed and tailored for each region through the support of an advisory group. The advisory group is composed of representatives and/or experts from the respective countries, United Nations organizations, bilateral agencies, regional centers and networks, and other international organizations that work on adaptation in the least developed countries (LDCs) from the respective regions. This workshop is part of the second round, and is being held in collaboration with the joint UNDP UNEP NAP global support programme (NAP GSP).


Objectives of the workshop

  1. To enhance the capacity of the LDCs to address medium- and long-term adaptation needs through the process to formulate and implement NAPs;
  2. To share tools and relevant resources of direct use to the countries to facilitate their work on the process to formulate and implement NAPs;
  3. To share experiences, best practices and lessons learned that countries can build on in the process to formulate and implement NAPs.
