Malawi: National adaptation plan for 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 loss of human, natural, financial, social and physical capital, caused by the adverse impacts of climate change, especially floods, drought and landslides, among many other natural disasters and calamities, is of great concern to the Malawi Government, as it strives to ensure sustainable livelihoods for all its citizens. The threat posed by extreme climatic events to food, health, water and energy has been the driving force for the preparation of Malawi’s National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA).
