The Department of Environment, Antigua and Barbuda is currently seeking applications from experts to develop a sector specific adaptation plan under the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) in order to enhance adaptive capacity, strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability to the adverse effects of climate change in Antigua & Barbuda (Article 7.1). This project is in direct support of the Paris Agreement 2015 adopted under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The central aim of this Agreement is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change as well as the ability of countries to deal with its negative impacts. The project will achieve this goal by engaging in adaptation planning processes and supporting implementation by developing national climate assessments with climate resilient sector plans, synthesizing priority actions into a National Adaptation Plan (NAP), and conducting technical studies in preparation for implementation of new climate regulations.
