Over ten countries have reported progress on their NAP so far—a handful have even reported more than once—while others are currently going through the exercise for the first time. As more and more countries start implementing NAP processes and develop monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) systems, the question of how to report on the progress and results of adaptation actions to different stakeholders, from local to international levels, becomes more urgent.
In May 2021, the NAP Global Network conducted a review of the available NAP progress reports. The results indicate that the reports show different objectives, approaches to evaluating progress, and ways in which the results are presented and communicated. The process of developing a progress report seems to present as many challenges as it does opportunities to strengthen NAP processes.
The goal of this webinar is to look at what has already been done in terms of NAP progress reporting, and to derive lessons that could guide countries who are about to start this process.
