The purpose of developing a National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) is to identify the urgent and immediate needs of a country to adapt to the present threats from climate change. Addressing these needs will expand the current coping range and enhance resilience in a way that will promote the capacity to adapt to current climate variability and extremes, and consequently to future climate change as well. The process is uniquely for the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as they have the least capacity to deal with climate impacts. 'NAPA' is a process, not a single document. It is a mean for LDCs to disseminate their proposed programmes to address their urgent and immediate adaptation needs. Support for priority activities identified in the NAPA is available through the Global Environment Facility (GEF)'s LDC Fund. (NAPA-pana.ORG)
