The project builds on the national climate priorities summarized in the 2015 NDC, and will support the Government of Armenia to advance its medium and long-term adaptation planning. The Green Climate Fund resources will be used to enable the government to integrate climate change related risks, coping strategies and opportunities into ongoing development planning and budgeting processes. The Government of Armenia sees the NAP process as a key step to achieving the adaptation objectives of its 2015 Nationally Determined Contribution.
With the development of a NAP process, Armenia will lay the groundwork for the systemic and iterative identification of medium- and long-term climate-induced risks, climate change adaptation priorities, and specific activities that promote climate adaptive and resilient growth in its key sectors. Concurrently, as part of the localization of the Sustainable Development Goals, the NAP process will contribute to the formulation of corresponding national climate-responsive indicators and targets.
The project will develop national, sectoral and territorial adaptation plans, their implementation strategies and other related documents to be approved by the Government of Armenia and/or Prime-Minister of Armenia. The priority sectors of the project: water, agriculture, energy, health, tourism and human settlements.
