The spirit of the Paris Agreement is that there will be “continued and strengthened international support” that will enable developing countries to implement their adaptation commitments under the agreement. It is also promised that the reduction of financial resources will “seek the balance between adaptation and mitigation” and will take into account the priorities and needs of developing countries, especially those most affected by climate change. Despite these promising signs, it remains to be seen how many credits will actually be available for adjustment after 2025. The Paris Agreement calls on countries not only to invite all countries – not just developing countries – to implement NAP processes, but also to improve the “efficiency and sustainability” of their adaptation measures. The achievement of this objective would be supported in part by monitoring, evaluating and learning about adaptation planning and implementation, as outlined in the agreement. These findings should be reported through regular adjustment notices. . SDG 14, Conservation and sustainable exploitation of oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development: this objective is closely linked to the concerns of many coastal countries for which Goal 14.2 is to achieve Goal 14.2, and the focus will be on strengthening the resilience of marine resources, including key sectors such as fisheries. Sri Lanka is an example of a country that, in its NAP and NDC (Sri Lanka 2016a, 2016b), focuses on the coastal sector, including biodiversity.
. Here are some important ways for the Paris Agreement to strengthen and build on previous commitments of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in the context of THE NAPs, and this will have a potential impact on adaptation efforts in developing countries. This expert perspective is part of a series of internationally recognized experts who are invited to examine the main problems faced by countries in implementing their national contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement on climate change. The opinions expressed are the authors themselves and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NDC Partnership Support Unit, its member countries or organizations.
