Burkina Faso: National climate change adaptation plan (NAP)

The objectives of an NAP are to (i) reduce vulnerability to the impact of climate change by developing adaptation and resilience capabilities; (ii) facilitate the integration of climate change adaptation into new or existing policies, programmes or activities and in specific development planning processes and strategies in pertinent sectors and at various levels in a coherent manner.

It ultimately results in a reference document containing practical information with a view to helping to:

  • reduce the vulnerability of natural, social and economic systems to climate change;
  • integrate climate change adaptation into current or future development policies and strategies.
  •  

The Burkina Faso NAP comprises (i) adaptation plans for each development sector and (ii) a global adaptation plan for the entire country.
