NAP Process and Actions 2016 (10 Case Studies in the Asia-Pacific Region)

Introduction

A variety of stakeholders in developing countries have greatly contributed to mainstreaming adaptation into national development strategies and plans in different ways (national adaptation planning (NAP) process) as well as implementing adaptation actions, which are compatible with sustainable development. Bilateral and multilateral donors have provided support to such process and implementation of actions in developing countries. There are a variety of experiences of, best practices of, and lessons learned from each process and action, however, they have not been well shared among relevant actors.

This is the reason why the Ministry of the Environment, Japan decided to develop case studies of the NAP processes and adaptation actions in different sectors which have been implemented in the Asia-Pacific region from Fiscal year 2015.

With the support of the governments, NGOs, relevant multi/bi-lateral agencies and experts, we conducted case studies and gathered them in this booklet. Additionally, we plan to hold a workshop, followed by last year's, to further spread awareness of these NAP processes and adaptation actions.

This booklet consists of ten case studies (five for the NAP processes and five for adaptation actions), summary of lessons learned from the studies, and processes of donors' assistance. It is our hope that this booklet, along with last year's, will help policy makers and any other relevant stakeholders to learn lessons and good practices from these NAP process and adaptation actions, and to utilize them into further planning and actions in the future.
