National adaptation plan for action - NAPA (2006) - Maldives

National adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change – those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage.

The Maldives is among the most vulnerable to predicted climate change and non-action is not an option for the country. The Maldives played an important role in the negotiation that lead to the UNFCCC and was the first to sign the Kyoto Protocol. This is the first NAPA developed to communicate the most urgent and immediate adaptation needs of the Maldives as stipulated under UNFCCC.
