Proceedings Report: Training on Preparing National Adaptation Plans in South Asia 5-6 November 2012, Kathmandu, Nepal

The two day Training on National Adaptation Plans now mandated for countries was organised by Climate Action Network South Asia in very timely manner. While the LDC in the region is done with NAPAs, there is confusion on value addition of NAPs and thus the sessions were organised to answer the un-answered questions. The efforts were made through a thoughtful agenda design that participants will be able to share their own experiences of preparing NAPAs that will to larger extent be able to provide answers. This worked as expected. The knowledge gained by officials will be handy for each country to build NAPs based on lessons learnt from NAPAs process and carry forward the successes rather than re-inventing the wheel.
