The writeshop will deliver the following outputs and contribute to the following outcomes:

1. Participants have a clearer understanding of the benefits and requirements of NAP Readiness
2. At least five concept notes or first draft proposals will be produced with clear timelines for
3. More and higher quality concepts and proposals will be developed in 2019, leading to higher
quality national adaptation planning in the region.
4. In turn, this should improve access and absorption of climate finance and speed up efforts to
enhance building resilience and adaptation efforts.

SPREP is therefore requesting that focal points identify relevant personnel and ensure that they set
aside the dates of the writeshop so that they can attend and benefit from this opportunity. SPREP is
