I. Background
Funded by Green Climate Fund (GCF), the “National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Support Project for adaptation planning and
implementation in Azerbaijan” will be launched and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme in
cooperation with the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The project will support the
Government of Azerbaijan to facilitate the development of the NAP and improve climate change adaptation actions in
Azerbaijan in three priority sectors identified by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources through stakeholder
consultations: water, agriculture and coastal areas. The NAP Project’s objective is to increase capacity on climate resilience and
adaptation in those three sectors through the implementation of actions and activities that will reduce or eliminate barriers for
an effective adaptation process at both the national and local levels
The current project builds on existing knowledge from previous and ongoing projects, the information generated under the
National Communications to the UNFCCC, on the preliminary and the expected results of the first GCF Readiness and
Preparatory Support project and complements the second GCF readiness project implemented currently by FAO, and also by
taking into account gender and minority considerations.
The GoA recognizes that there are gaps in the existing baseline of adaptation planning that need to be addressed. Based on the
2017 stocktaking and fact-finding exercise, the current status of CCA in Azerbaijan was assessed and barriers and needs were
identified under three main intervention areas: i) Improved data and information access and sharing by stakeholders; ii) Existing
institutional and technical capacity gaps and needs for CCA at the managerial, individual and community levels; and iii)
Mainstreaming of CCA into national, regional, local and sectoral planning.
This NAP effort will build on existing investments and policies to directly address gaps in the baseline of these three intervention
