Vertical Integration in NAP Processes: Linking national and sub-national adaptation planning

Another installment of the NAP Global Network's webinar series is coming up later this month. This event will focus on efforts of countries to link national and sub-national adaptation. One of the two objectives of the national adaptation plan (NAP) process is to integrate climate change adaptation into new and existing development planning across sectors and levels. This webinar will explore approaches to vertical integration—the process of creating intentional and strategic linkages between national and sub-national adaptation planning, implementation and monitoring & evaluation (M&E).

When: Friday, 28 April; 2-3 p.m. CEST
