Strengthening Adaptation Planning Project is funded under the Green Climate Fund (GCF) Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme. This Fund was established as a financial mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to support climate actions in developing countries.
These countries are extremely vulnerable to climate change and its adverse impacts because of their geographic and socio-economic status. They need considerable financing resources to facilitate adequate adaptation to climate change impacts.

Accessing and management of the GCF are still major capacity gaps for developing countries. The readiness and preparatory support programme of the GCF was therefore established to maximize the effectiveness of this fund and also to build the capacities of national governments and/or institutions in vulnerable countries to increase accessibility and effective management of these funds.

Readiness funds also assist developing countries to undertake adaptation planning and strategic frameworks to build their programming with GCF.

The overall goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity for effective adaptation planning in Tonga. This project will support the Government of Tonga (GoT) to advance its National Adaptation Planning process through its Joint National Action Plan 2 on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management (JNAP 2) framework by building on existing capacities and enhancing institutions already in place at national, sectoral, community levels as well as the outer Islands.
