The COP by its decision 8/CP.13 extented the mandate of the least
developed countries expert group (LEG) in supporting preparation and implementation strategy of
NAPAs. Under its activities for 2008-2010, the LEG selected training workshops for implementing NAPAs as
one of the priorities. A total of five training workshops have therefore been planned by the LEG in
collaboration with the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and its agencies, and this is the third one in the
series. The workshop is targeting Asian LDCs, comprising 10 Parties to the UNFCCC.
The objective of the training is:
to provide technical support to LDC teams in the design of an implementation
strategy for the NAPAs, and to build capacity of these teams in the preparation and submission of project
documents (PIF, PPG and FSP document) to the GEF under the LDCF; and,
where needed, to provide technical support to those LDC Parties that are
still preparing their NAPAs.
