The technical assistance (TA) teams will work with selected municipalities in the Lumbini, Karnali, and Sudurpaschim Provinces to support them through the climate change adaptation and resilience planning process aligning with Local Adaptation Plan of Action (LAPA) Framework.
The focus of the TA teams’ support is on inclusive, accountable, and evidence-based planning and implementation. The emphasis is on supporting the process by which, for example, the annual plan and periodic plan are developed in a participatory approach and uses climate information.

This includes demand-driven on-the-job “hand-holding” support for municipality’s functionaries/representatives (the Chairs or Mayors, Deputy Chairs or Mayors , executives, executive committees, ward chairs/members, ward level committees, thematic committees etc.). The on-the-job support is expected to build up the capacity and skills of the municipalities to manage the processes themselves.
The Climate Coordinator will support, guide, monitor, facilitate and assess the performance of the municipalities in implementing NCCSP2. The Climate Coordinator also captures and shares learning from Local Adaptation Plans for Action (LAPA) activities and methodology.
