Eritrea: National adaptation programme of action - NAPA (2007)

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.

Eritrea is a Least Developed Country situated in an arid and semi-arid region of Sahalian Africa. The country has low adaptive capacity relative to constraints in wealth, technology, education, institutions, information, infrastructure and social capital. This renders Eritrea highly vulnerable to climate variability, extreme weather events, and long-term climate change.
