Introduction

UNEP helps developing countries to reduce vulnerabilities and build resilience to the impacts of climate change. UNEP builds and strengthens national institutional capacities for vulnerability assessment and adaptation planning, and supports national efforts to integrate climate change adaptation measures into development planning and ecosystem management practices. The work is guided by and contributes to the Nairobi Work Programme on Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (a programme developed by the UNFCC to help countries understand climate change impacts and adapt to climate change). UNEP also promotes sustainable land-use management and reduced emissions from deforestation and degradation, bridging adaptation and mitigation.
