National Adaptation Plan

September 19, 2023

Bhutan's first National Adaptation Plan (NAP) analyzes climate risks in seven climate vulnerable sectors of water, agriculture and livestock, forests and biodiversity, human settlement and climate-smart cities, health, energy, climate service and disaster risk reduction.

Based on the assessments, it identifies medium-and-long-term adaptation priorities—a much-needed shift from ad hoc, project-based adaptation interventions focused on address short-term threats toward more strategic and programmatic approaches to adaptation.

The NAP will guide the implementation of these priorities through integration into national, sectoral, and local development plans.
