Ethiopia: 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.

Through the NAPA process, twenty priority project ideas are identified that address immediate climate change adaptation needs of the country. These projects broadly focus in the areas of human and institutional capacity building, improving natural resource management, enhancing irrigation agriculture and water harvesting, strengthening early warning systems and awareness raising.
