GWP Cameroon to support completion of NAP

Cameroon’s Ministry of Environment, Protection of Nature and Sustainable Development (MINEPDED) in collaboration with Global Water Partnership (GWP) Cameroon and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Cameroon country office organised a national workshop to present and validate the country’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP).

The validation workshop took place in Ebolowa, capital of the Southern Region, from the 26th – 28th of August 2014. The NAP was approved by the participants subject to integration of comments and recommendations that resulted from group work sessions. The GWP Cameroon team of four experts participated in the technical committee meeting to consolidate the workshop recommendations. It was concluded that GWP Cameroon will support the finalisation of the NAP by providing one representative to sit on the “taskforce”, and specifically be responsible for overseeing the costing and budgeting of approved adaptation projects.
