Ethiopia National Programme of Action (NAPA)

Ethiopia has special needs regarding adaptation to climate change. With arid and semi-arid areas, areas liable to drought and desertification, areas with fragile ecosystems including mountainous ecosystems, and an economy highly dependent on consumption of fossil fuels and associated energy- intensive products, Ethiopia is particularly vulnerable. An overriding need is for developed country parties to the Convention to take full account of these circumstances in order to facilitate the transfer of needed technology and resources so that effective adaptation can continue to take place.
