Rwanda: 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.

Having in mind scientific predictions that climate change shall have a serious effect on Least Developed Countries (LDC), the Rwanda NAP A report constitutes a decisive step in its search to respond to immediate and urgent needs for adaptation to negative effects of this change. It therefore offers integration opportunities of measures and strategies of adaptation to climate change in the document for Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS) under preparation. This comes to complete and correct loopholes discovered during the preparation and implementation of Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP I).
