Introduction of long-term adaptation planning process in Montenegro that is anchored in the National Climate Change Strategy by 2030 and recent Montenegro’s National Communication
National plan of adaptation to climate change (NAP)
The climate change poses serious, wide-ranging risks to economies, societies and ecosystems. Reducing these risks requires action to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), combined with measures to increase resilience to the impacts that occur (adaptation). Through the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) opportunities are created to ensure a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous future for all. Relying on the cooperation with national stakeholders and in close cooperation with the Government of Montenegro, a stocktaking exercise to inform the development of an adaptation process concluded that water, agriculture, tourism and health sectors were the initial priority sectors for intervention.

Relaying on the assessments the project team developed initial NAP draft and initial draft of adaptation measures.
