National Climate Change Action Plan

The National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) assesses the current situation of the country with regard to climate change risk and outlines the NCCAP’s agenda for adaptation and mitigation for 2011 to 2028 as a response to the current situation and projected impact. It also prioritises food security, water sufficiency, ecosystem and environmental stability, human security, climate-smart industries and services, sustainable energy, and capacity development as the strategic direction for 2011 to 2028.
In drafting the NCCAP, the multi-sectoral processes conducted ensured that the concerns of various sectors are heard and considered. Public financing will prioritise adaptation to reduce vulnerability and risks of communities particularly the marginalised poor. At the same time, this plan will provide a policy environment that will encourage the participation of the private sector to optimize mitigation opportunities towards sustainable development.
It is a comprehensive plan that provides key actions that:
– enhances adaptive capacity and resilience of communities and natural ecosystems to climate change
– adopts the total economic valuation of natural resources while ensuring biodiversity conservation
– recognises the competitive advantage of putting value on the direct use, indirect use, option to use and non-use of environment and natural resources, as a short to long-term sustainable development goal.
