Advancing National Adaptation Plans Post Paris: NAP Expo 2016

NAP Expo 2016 was organised in Bonn, Germany from the 11th to the 15th of July 2016. The fourth in the series, it included keynotes on latest science and approaches on climate change adaptation, best practices and lessons learned, and information from relevant bodies, organisations and agencies on support for the formulation and implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). The event was attended by representatives of Parties to the UNFCCC, UN, international and bilateral organisations, agencies, experts, scientists and members of civil society.

The Expo included also discussions on how different stakeholders could be involved in the NAP process in an effective manner through an inclusive and participatory process for stakeholder engagement.
Southern Voices on Adaptation co-organised a session on stakeholder engagement in the NAP process which gathered the participation of multiple actors including policy makers of countries such as Sri Lanka, Nepal, Togo who presented their experiences.

5th Asia Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum

The 5th Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum will bring together policymakers, scientists, donors, youth, and representatives from over 50 countries. The Forum will be be held at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Convention Hall from October 17-19, 2016 in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
For 2016, the theme “Adapting and Living below 2°C:  Bridging the Gaps in Policy and Practice” will explore platforms and concrete pathways for even greater partnerships by governments, civil society and business.  With the growing interest and with the recognition of adaptation not only as a development imperative but as an existential one as well, we are looking forward to welcoming more than 800 participants who will be looking towards meaningful outcomes during the event.

Updates from the Secretariat
We are sitting at Chokdup’s daughter’s tiny teashop-cum-bar in Lachen, a small village perched 2,750 metres above the mean sea level (MSL) on the right bank of the Lachen Chu river in North Sikkim. Outside, in the foggy twilight, across the Himalayas, we can see the headlights of a cavalcade of vans and jeeps that will soon bring hundreds of tourists to Lachen for a night’s halt.

Sri Lanka’s proposal for GCF Funding focuses on addressing issues on water security and food security in the Dry Zone of Sri Lanka. The increased number of rainfall events followed by longer dry spells in the Dry Zone through the north-east monsoon which supports agriculture in the Dry Zone have directly impacted the incomes and food security of the farmers.
