Mauritania: National adaptation programme of action - NAPA (2004)

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 rationale for establishing NAPA rests on the low adaptive capacity of LDCs to climate change; hence the need for immediate and urgent support to start devising strategies adapte to current and projected needs in the area of climate change. Mauritania does not consider the drafting of the NAPA document to be an end in itself, but rather a stage in enabling a response to needs in adapting to climate change. Activities proposed in this context are those whose further delay in implementation could increase vulnerability or lead to increased cost at a later stage.
