The Dominica Climate Resilience Recovery Plan (CRRP) was created under the terms of the Climate resilience Act, 2018 and gives full effect to the National Resilience Development Strategy developed in 2018. The CRRP creates targets, defines initiatives and outlines resources required to implement resilience measures.

The Plan also confirms Dominica's commitment to becoming 'carbon neutral' by 2030, The description of this target in Annex 2 notes that carbon neutrality will be "achieved through 100% domestic renewable energy production, and increase of protected forest areas to 67% of Dominica’s land mass." Annex 2 also provides details on a number of other ambitious targets concerning community and economic resilience, sustainable infrastructure, and the protection of natural assets among other matters.
