March 2016 – February 2019
Jointly designed by Climate Analytics and the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), PAS-PNA stands for Projet d’Appui Scientifique aux processus de Plans Nationaux d’Adaptation dans les pays francophones les moins avancés d’Afrique subsaharienne.
The project focuses on the following four activities:
- Strengthening national NAP governance processes
- Increasing national scientific capacity for the identification, planning and implementation of adaptation options and measures
- Increasing national capacity to access international funding for NAP priority areas
- Facilitating regional exchanges on NAP processes for francophone SSA LDCs
As the main responsible for the second activity, Climate Analytics accompanies national universities, research institutes and government agencies (so-called Climate Service Providers -CSPs) in conducting in-depth vulnerability studies and in identifying adaptation priorities and measures. Science-based documents such as briefings, reports and analyses and drafted jointly with the CSPs are submitted to policy-makers with the aim to increase the integration of scientific information into national policy formulation processes and more generally to support science-based decision-making in the region.
