Leading Organization:United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
Implementing Agency and Partnering Organizations:Secretariat of State for Environmental Coordination, Territorial Ordinance and Physical Development
National adaptation programmes of action (NAPAs) provide a process for Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to climate change – those for which further delay would increase vulnerability and/or costs at a later stage. The following summarizes the NAPA for East Timor.
Climate Related Hazards: To be determined.
Main Human Vulnerabilities and Livelihood Impacts: To be determined.
- 1.To set up Institutional structure for the preparation of the NAPA document
- 2.To conduct participatory assessment of vulnerability to current climate variability
- 3.To identify key climate change adaptation measures and develop proposals for priority activities to address the adverse effects of climate change
- 4.To prepare the NAPA document in the format established by the COP
- 5.To have the NAPA document endorsed by the national Parliament, Council of Ministers and the Prime Minister
- 6.To disseminate the final NAPA document to the public.
- Output 1.0: Institutional structure for preparation of NAPA document established
- Output 2.0: Vulnerability to current climate variability assessed
- Output 3.0: Potential climate change adaptation measures formulated and prioritized
- Output 4.0: The National Adaptation Programme of Action Prepared and Endorsed
