August 2015 – May 2019
- To inform decision makers and stakeholders on the national and subnational levels about expected climate changes and their projected impacts;
- To develop the NAP taking into account the results of the CCRA;
- To integrate the priorities of the CCRA-based NAP into sector policies/strategies and subnational planning instruments;
- To align financing instruments to support adaptation measures with the requirements of the Risk-NAP
In 2015, as a reaction to increasing loss and damages caused by climate change, Thailand has started to develop its National Adaptation Plan (NAP). Although adaptation is part of the Climate Change Master Plan as well as other national policies, specific information on climate related risks and options to adapt to these risks are still lacking. At the same time, insufficient integration of adaptation needs in subnational planning processes is being observed.
Hence, the project aims at supporting the development of a risk-based national adaptation plan (NAP) and integrating it into national and subnational planning processes, in order to strengthen Thailand’s capacity to adapt to the risks of climate change.
The risk-based National Adaptation Plan project is financed by the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Ministry for Environment, Nature protection, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), and will support the Thai Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment (MoNRE) and its Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP), as well as the Department of Public Works and Town & Country Planning (DPT) of the Thai Ministry of Interior (MoI).
