Sudan: National adaptation plan for 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.

Adaptation to climate change is a very compelling subject for the people of Sudan, burdened as they already are with devastating and recurring droughts, as well as severe hardships in the ability to coping with even current climatic variability. It is no overstatement to declare at the outset of this important document that the ability to adapt to the projected changes in climate will be a critical factor upon which the future prosperity – perhaps even the survival - of thousands of Sudanese communities depends.
