This analytical report aims to share information on a decade of experiences, best practices and lessons learned in addressing adaptation in least developed countries (LDCs) through the National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) process. NAPAs provide a process for the LDCs to identify priority activities that respond to their urgent and immediate needs with regard to adaptation to climate change, taking into account that further delay could increase vulnerability or lead to increased costs at a later stage. It is hoped that the publication will offer insights for replicating and learning from these lessons on a larger scale. Also available in Portuguese.
