Promoting synergy and alignment: between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction in the context of national adaptation plans

This publication is a supplement to the UNFCCC NAP Technical Guidelines. The supplement focuses particularly on the opportunities that the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process provides to national authorities and stakeholders for integrating risk-centred approaches and in creating synergies and effective connections with disaster risk reduction efforts. It should be used in conjunction with the NAP guidelines10 as it uses the four elements outlined in that document as its basis.
