The Green Climate Fund (GCF) has awarded the Government of the Republic of Zambia a Grant of USD2,184,555 for the development of a National Adaptation Plan (NAP) for Climate Resilience. The Grant will enable the Government to formulate a medium to long-term climate adaptation plan, which will strengthen systems for integrating climate change adaptation into development planning and budget processes. The NAP will also facilitate the development of prioritized adaptation actions with financing strategies.
This will enable Zambia to systematically advance the implementation of priority adaptation actions contributing to the implementation of Zambia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris agreement and the achievement of climate change goals under the 7th National Development Plan”. Gender will be an integral dimension in the NAP process, as guided by Zambia’s 2017 Climate Change Gender Action Plan ccGaP.
