The National Adaptation Plan is being developed


"National Adaptation Plan (NAP) to advance medium and long-term adaptation planning in Armenia" project  has been launched, which is implemented with financing of USD 2.7 million grant from the Green Climate Fund provided to Armenia. The project aims to establish adaptation  priorities in our country outlined through the Paris Agreement.
 RA First Deputy Minister of Nature Protection Irina Ghaplanyan, UNDP Resident Representative in Armenia Dmitry Mariyasin, officers and experts of a number of state agencies, international and non-governmental organizations participated in the project's initial workshop.
In her speech, Irina Ghaplanyan emphasized that as a sector coordinating department, the Ministry of Nature Protection makes a point of Armenia's full-fledged participation in climate processes. The launched project envisages identification of medium- and long-term risks, as well as priorities and actions ensuring adaptation and sustainable development of key sectors of Armenia in the direction of  climate change.
Armenia will lay the groundwork for institutional sustainability of climate change adaptation processes in water resources, agriculture, energy, health, tourism, including other key priority sectors. To achieve thereof, systematic and continued action plans will be developed.
The NAP will also contribute to the integration of Armenia into governance planning, international budgeting processes, inclusive of seeking finance options required for facing climate change challenges.
