Description du stage : C3D - Climate Change Capacity Development

The overall objective of this project is to directly provide resources to the three regional centres to enhance their training capacity as national centres this will address key problems arising from the interaction of climate change and sustainable development.


The preparation of a National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) is a process in which Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are to identify their urgent and immediate needs to adapt to the present threats from climate change. The process is uniquely for LDCs as they are the most affected by climate change and have the least capacity to deal with the impacts.


The ACCCA programme is managed by UNITAR, in collaboration with other institutions in Europe, Asia and Africa as well as START International (Washington) and the Stockholm Environment Institute. The overall objectives of the programme are to increase the resilience and well-being of groups in developing countries of Africa and Asia that are particularly vulnerable to climate change and other environmental stresses; integrate climate change adaptation strategies into development planning and poverty reduction policies; and advance the participation of all elements of civil society, including disadvantaged groups that are particularly vulnerable.
