Crossroads Hotel





The NAP Expo is an outreach event organized by the Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) under the UNFCCC, in collaboration with various bodies and organizations, to promote exchange of experiences and foster partnerships between a wide range of actors and stakeholders on how to advance National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).

The regional NAP Expo in Malawi will be held as part of the 12th Community Based Adaptation (CBA 12) Conference that will take place from 11 to 14 June 2018 in Malawi.


The objectives of the NAP Expo are to:

  • Provide a platform for focused interactions between Parties and non-Party stakeholders on aspects that advance the formulation and implementation of NAPs;

  • 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.


The full programme, including all the presentations, is available on the interactive webpage for the Regional NAP Expo 2018.
