Background

The Republic of Liberia’s economy, population, and environment are highly vulnerable to climate variability and change. A range of studies, including the Republic of Liberia’s Initial National Communication under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) notes that the impacts of climate change are expected to intensify as changes in temperature and precipitation affect economic activity.

In order to respond to the risks posed by climate change, there is a need to conduct and update relevant climate vulnerability and risk assessment in the key sectors. This will give decisions makers and the most vulnerable population adequate tools/information to integrate climate change in to their planning strategies. Also, it enables them to better plan their medium and long-term adaptation programs/policies/strategies.

The two-year project "To advance the National Adaptation Plans (NAP) process for medium-term investment planning in climate-sensitive sectors (i.e. agriculture, energy, waste management, forestry and health) and coastal areas in Liberia" funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and partners including the Environmental Protection Agency, is responding to this need.

The project will conduct climate change vulnerability and climate risk assessments on key sectors and systems with a goal of enabling Liberia to develop the knowledge base and capacity required to reduce vulnerability to climate change and to facilitate the integration of climate change adaptation into national development planning processes. The main project objective is to support Liberia to put in place its National Adaptation Planning process contributing to and building upon existing development planning strategies and processes and to implement priority adaptation actions.
