  • Serve as a forum for sharing experience, best practices, lessons learned, gaps and needs and information on support provided and received in relation to the process to formulate and implement NAPs;
  • Offer a platform for countries to interact with providers of support, including the GCF and GEF, and bilateral agencies as means to improve access to financing for NAPs;
  • Serve as a global forum on NAPs where different organizations and bodies can conduct specialized meetings and workshops  with a view to ensuring coherence among the approaches in supporting countries undertake the process.
