Region-wide Early Action Plan (REAP) for Climate Change Adaptation

By 2015 the WG published the Region-wide Early Action Plan for CCA in the CT Region (REAP) and the Local Early Action Plan for CCA (LEAP). These documents were developed through a series of call meetings, REXs, workshops and formal meetings with CCA country focal points together with development partners and other stakeholders. Some countries with the assistance of NGOs and partners are using the REAP and the LEAP in conducting various CCA-related activities at the local level. The WG has already developed their M&E indicators and in fact, it is already integrated in the CT Atlas. Countries only need to update the CT Atlas to generate data on CCA in the CT Region. The group has conducted a total of four (4) Regional Exchanges and TWG meetings with various themes with the last one focused on the establishment of Center of Excellence on CCA. The WG also aims to develop an Executive Course on CCA designed for local leaders to train them on how to make their communities resilient to climate change.This group is supported technically by WWF.
