On 30th March 2020 the Green Climate Fund (GCF) approved Zambia’s request for readiness support towards the National Adaptation Planning for Climate Resilience. The grant is administered by the Global Water Partnership as the Delivery Partner (DP). The purpose of the grant is to enable the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) to formulate a medium to long term National Adaptation Plan (NAP) aimed at strengthening systems for integrating climate change adaptation into development planning and budgeting processes. Furthermore, once formulated the NAP is expected to facilitate the development of prioritized adaptation actions with clear strategies on how these would be financed. By so doing, Zambia would be able to systematically advance the implementation of prioritized adaptation actions, contribute to the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and achieve the climate change goals under the Seventh National Development Plan (SNDP). The process of formulating the Zambia NAP will take into consideration Gender aspects as guided by Zambia’s 2017 Climate Change Gender Action Plan.
