Developing a National Adaptation Planning Process in Turkmenistan
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen Turkmenistan’s adaptive and resiliency capacities by developing a national adaptation process (NAP).
The Government of Turkmenistan seeks to strengthen its adaptive and resiliency capacities to climate change by integrating climate risks and adaptation measures into planning and budgeting processes via the development of a national adaptation process (NAP). Doing so will complement other key foundational measures including Turkmenistan’s Nationally Determined Contribution, the Third and the under-development Fourth National Communication, and a National Climate Change Strategy.
The proposed project seeks to achieve the following outcomes:
● Outcome 1: An Institutional framework to implement the Paris Agreement established
● Outcome 2: The evidence base for adaptation planning in the water sector strengthened
● Outcome 3: The capacity for adaptation planning strengthened
The project is focused on developing a national coordination mechanism and governance processes for conducting adaptation planning and measures and on strengthening the evidence base within the water sector so as to provide the information required for effective decision-making. Lastly, the project will increase the capacity of those involved in adaptation planning as within the water sector and adaptation planning in general.
