At the sixteenth session of the Conference of the Parties in Cancun, Mexico, in December 2010, governments further recognized that adaptation must be addressed with the same priority as mitigation, and adopted the Cancun Adaptation Framework (CAF) to enhance action on adaptation. The CAF includes a process to enable LDC Parties, building upon their experience with the NAPAs, to formulate and implement national adaptation plans and an invitation to other developing country Parties to employ the modalities formulated to support those plans. It is in this context that other Parties have shown increased interest in learning from the experiences of the LDC Parties in the NAPA process. In recognition of this interest, the LDC Expert Group (LEG), in consultation with LDC Parties and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and its agencies, with support from the UNFCCC secretariat, have prepared this publication to share information on a decade of rich experiences, best practices and lessons learned in addressing adaptation in LDCs through the NAPA process.
