  The COP by its decision 8/CP.13 extended 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 fourth one in the series. The workshop is targeting Lusophone LDCs and one recently graduated Lusophone LDCs, comprising in total five Parties to the UNFCCC. The workshop will be entirely in Portuguese, along with the training materials.

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
