Abstract
The Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI), at its twenty-ninth session in December 2008, invited the least developed countries (LDC) expert group (LEG) to assess, in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and its agencies, the support needed to fully implement national adaptation programmes of action (NAPA) projects. This paper analyzes the information submitted in NAPAs as well as costing data in project proposals submitted to the GEF for funding under the Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF) to provide an estimate of the financial support needed to fully implement NAPAs. Other types of support, including capacity-building, technology development and transfer and institutional arrangements are also considered.
