UNITAR Launches Three Interactive Case Studies on National Adaptation Planning (NAP)

5 October 2015, Geneva, Switzerland - UNITAR in collaboration with the GEF-LDCF funded UNDP-UNEP National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Global Support Programme (GSP) expands its on-line tool-box to improve countries’ accessibility to knowledge and resources for adaptation planning and decision-making.

Three NAP case studies have been developed to synthesize and facilitate the sharing of good practices and lessons learned from developing countries engaged in the NAP process.

The case studies are navigable and highly interactive. They make use of infographics, video and audio-files to facilitate learning and knowledge sharing. These tools can be used in multiple ways:

  • In conjunction with UN CC:Learn e-course as a cross-learning source;
  • For capacity development and training activities;
  • As stand-alone knowledge products.
