LOCAL ADAPTATION PLANS (LAPs) are being developed to implement activities under the National Strategy for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation with the aim of building the medium- and long-term adaptive capacity of local communities. The Ministry of Land, Environment and Rural Development (MITADER) is involved in the process of drawing up these plans to support the Strategic Plans for District Development (SDDS), in partnership with local government (district and provincial) and development partners.
LAPs set out climate vulnerabilities in relation to local capacity. In the plans, districts and communities put forward their vision of development in the context of climate change and outline the interventions needed to achieve this vision. To date, 25 district plans have been approved and these will be available to download from this site (in Portuguese).
