NAP Regional Training Workshop for African LDCs

The NAP-GSP Project Board-approved NAP-GSP work plan includes a number of Regional Training Workshops on developing frameworks and strategies for NAPs for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) which request support.

NAP-GSP implementing agencies United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and other partners and collaborators (GEF, UNITAR, IFAD, UNFCCC, WHO, GWP, FAO, GIZ), are holding the NAP Regional Training Workshop for African LDCs on 17-20 March 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The objectives of the training workshop are as follows:

1. To improve the understanding of the NAPs process;
2. To take stock of the existing guidance and tools and methods relevant to the NAPs so as to help LDCs develop roadmaps/ strategies for the NAPs;
3. To take stock of what countries are doing on advancing their respective NAP process and exchange lessons learnt and experiences;
4. To exchange information on the mechanisms and options for financing NAPs.

The workshop will also highlight support available through the NAP-GSP and partners to support countries with advancing their NAP process.

UNDP, UNEP and other NAP-GSP partners are inviting ministerial representatives and technical experts from Environment, Planning and Finance Ministries (up to three participants) from each of the nine LDCs.
