Adaptation Planning support for Mauritania through UNEP

Several barriers prevent the GoM from integrating climate change adaptation into existing strategies and governance structures. These institutional barriers include: i) limited inter-sectoral collaboration between relevant ministries, departments and stakeholders; ii) a lack of clearly defined roles and responsibilities amongst relevant stakeholders; iii) limited availability of climate change knowledge and data; iv) the absence of a centralised database for the systematic storage of all climate change data; v) a lack of a funding strategy that would enable investment into climate change adaptation; and vi) limited monitoring and evaluation of initiatives at a national and local scale.

To address these barriers, the proposed GCF readiness and preparatory support project will implement activities according to four priority outcomes, namely:

  • strengthening the technical and institutional capacity of government institutions, vulnerable groups and relevant stakeholders to implement the NAP process;
  • enhancing the management, acquisition and dissemination of climate change data and information to inform priority adaptation interventions for the country;
  • developing an adaptation funding strategy to guide climate change financing in the mediumand long-term; and
  • Establishing a monitoring and reviewing system for the NAP process at a national, Wilaya (regional) and local scale.
