FAO has developed supplementary guidelines to the UNFCCC NAP Guidelines for "Addressing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag Guidelines") aiming to support developing countries in making sure agriculture is both included in national adaptation plans and made more adaptive and resilient.

A publication launched by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) DTU Partnership (UDP) and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) showcases practices that have been developed in monitoring and evaluating climate change adaptation.

This study analyses the climate change discourses and political dynamics in south-western Burkina Faso from three empirical entry points: the production of the National Adaptation Programmes of Action; climate change discourses in the Ioba province; and the role of the public media.

Adaptation responses are needed to address the existing levels of climate variability and to prepare for future climate impacts. There is wide agreement that adaptation is an important issue and would benefit from being enhanced through more effective action and better planning.

Bringing together the dual aims of low-carbon and climate resilient development has become a significant policy goal in planning for climate change.

To guide climate adaptation policies and investments, the majority of least developed countries (LDCs) have developed National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPAs).

This study looks at different ways to improve adaptation and mitigation synergies in climate change financing. It reviews existing definitions of synergies and identifies various types of synergies that have been recognized to date.

There is growing recognition that finding appropriate responses to climate change requires a broad understanding and approach beyond the scientific, and that policy reform must be part of a process of social and institutional change. This paper examines one dynamic which underpins this process of change: gender.

This report introduces the National Adaptive Capacity (NAC) framework, a tool to help governments bring institutional capacity development into their adaptation planning processes. The NAC framework enables its users to systematically assess institutional strengths and weaknesses that may help or hinder adaptation.

Mission to reduce chances of glacial lake's outburst fails to achieve target. The Thorthormi glacial lake in northern Bhutan is considered the country's likeliest climate-induced disaster. The lake, perched at a height of more than 4,400 metres, is swelling because of melting ice, and is in danger of bursting its wall. Efforts by the Bhutanese government to lower the lake's water level is yet to eliminate the risk of a disaster, which may sweep away communities living in the upper catchment of the Pho Chu river, fed by the glacier.
