Lesotho: 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.

The key objectives of the NAPA process entail: identification of communities and livelihoods most vulnerable to climate change, generating a list of activities that would form a core of the national adaptation programme of action, and to communicate the country’s immediate and urgent needs and priorities for building capacity for adaptation to climate change.
