Democratic Republic of Congo
National Strategic Development Plan PNSD 2019-2023
The fifth pillar of the plan includes the fight against climate change. This pillar focuses on activities that guarantee the sustainability of development, in particular those that contribute to mitigating the effects of climate change as well as adapting to the effects of these changes that are already present (floods, erosion, landslides, heat, drought...) should be preferred. Thus, the fight against climate change involves arbitrating between conservation and the various other uses of strategic spaces: housing, urbanization, forestry, exploitation of arable land, mining and oil; construction of transport and communication routes. This arbitration thus determines the remaining spaces for sectoral diversification and land use planning.
A financial assessment of the cost of the measures to be taken by the government over the period, including on climate change matters, is presented at page 87.
