We are delighted to announce that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Panel has accredited the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases as one of their official observer organisations.

The IPCC is the international body for assessing the science related to climate change. It was set up in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation.

Date and Time: Wednesday, 19 April. 10:00-11:30am (CEST-Rome)

Learn More: Webinar Series Overview

Webinar Goals

  • Demonstrate effective institutional and individual capacity development approaches during the formulation and implementation of the NAPs;
  • Provide examples of practical approaches and tools to assess individual and institutional capacities for National Adaptation Planning; and
  • Facilitate discussions between countries on their experience in carrying out both institutional and individual capacity development, in addition to individual skills assessments.

Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) is a multi-year Programme funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) through its International Climate Initiative (ICI).

It supports partner countries under a country-driven process to identify and address climate change adaptation measures for the agriculture sectors in relevant national planning and budgeting processes through the formulation and implementation of a National Adaptation Plan (NAP).
