Comoros: National adaptation programme of action - NAPA (2006)

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 elaboration of the Country Action Programme on Adaptation to Climate Change (NAPA) is the fruit of a participative process based upon basic studies, field investigations, consultations and many working meetings and workshops. This Action Programme is the result of a prior analysis made on climate.

This analysis revealed an evolution of the climate marked, over the past thirty years, by precipitation fluctuations and intervals in the season, early and prolonged droughts and a 1°C rise in the average temperature.
