On October 20 and 21, 2020, more than 30 people participated in the virtual meeting "NAP Action Days: regional exchange on NAP projects in Latin America and the Caribbean" organized by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).

With funding from the Green Climate Fund (GCF), UNEP and UNDP are supporting more than 10 countries in Latin América and the Caribbean (LAC) to strengthen their planning processes for adaptation to climate change through the NAPs. The “NAP Action Days” is an inter-agency UNEP / UNDP initiative that aims to promote the dialogue between the coordination teams of these projects, to share experiences and lessons learned, generate synergies and bring together efforts for adaptation to climate change in the region.

Representatives of the Government as well as NAP project teams from 10 LAC countries participated in the virtual dialogue: Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, the Dominican Republic and Uruguay.

The topics addressed during the meeting included aspects related to:

  • Climate risk assessments and prioritization of adaptation measures.

  • Finance strategies and the role of the private sector in NAPs.

  • Integrating NAPs into NDCs.
