South Sudan's first national Adaptation Plan for Climate Change

Nov 30, 2021

This first National Adaptation Plan (NAP) fulfils the mandate to strategise climage change adaptation and efforts to reduce community vulnerability and variability to climate change. These mandates are committed by a comprehensive framework for building resilience across all segments of our society. Over the next five years, the first South Sudan NAP will guide direct implementation and policy from a national level, down to our communities and households. The NAP consists of three priority pillars: 1. Building climate resilient communities; 2. Building a climate resilient economy and development trajectory; and 3. Building a climate-resilient environment and ecosystems.

The NAP is intended to be presented to the UNFCCC, and to guide adaptation in South Sudan from 2021-2025 building on nine priority sectors.
