National Policy for the Adaptation to Climate Change
The Policy is a general document announcing sectoral plans to be developed in an array of domains. It includes mitigation goals, notably through the objective of fostering the use of renewables and decrease of fossil fuels in the energy mix, enacted in the Electricity Act of 2015. It also elaborates adaptation policies in the forestry sector, enacted in the Forestry Act 2010 via the Regulations 2014. It seeks to improve popular knowledge on climate change, conduct appropriate research in the Bahamas and reorganise institutional systems and management mechanisms to ensure effective planning. The document aims at institutionalising and detailing the missions of the National Climate Change Committee.
