Sudan National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA)
Climate change poses significant challenges to a developing country like Sudan. Not only will many of its important ecosystems and natural resources be adversely affected, but its farmers and pastoralists - spread over thousands of villages from northern desert regions to southern forests - will face increasing difficulty in wresting their livelihoods under conditions of rising heat stress and recurrent drought. The National Adaptation Programme of Action has resulted in a better understanding of the links between adaptation to climate change in the Sudanese government’s ongoing efforts at poverty alleviation.
