Resolution 52/08, establishing the National Strategy for the Implementation of UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol
The National Strategy discusses the possibilities and opportunities that Angola has as a result of joining the Kyoto Protocol as well as the flexible mechanisms that can be used, especially in the case of Angola, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
The Resolution sets the intervention framework for Angola in the legislative, technical and human domains. This framework should contribute to the stabilisation of GHG emissions and technological development of the country. The National Implementation Strategy comprises: generating reports and inventories about GHG emissions in Angola and their impact on the environment and public health; producing programmes and projects with measures to mitigate the effects of climate change; developing technical and professional training actions in areas related to climate change; fostering international co-operation within the context of climate change, particularly in terms of transfer of knowledge, experience and technology; and instituting the Designated National Authority (DNA) under the Ministry of the Environment as the entity responsible for coordinating inter-sectoral efforts for the implementation of UNFCCC in the country on the issues related to CDM. The DNA had its attributions defined through Government Order 2/10, being responsible for the execution of all CDM actions pertaining to the implementation of UNFCCC in the country.
