National Climate Change Adaptation Policy
The National Climate Change Adaptation Policy was adopted in 2002 by the Cabinet following the Initial National Communication to the 2002 UNFCCC Conference of the Parties. The Policy aims at fostering and guiding a national action plan to address short, medium and long term effects of Climate Change while providing the greatest possible quality of life to the population.
The Policy seeks to reduce effects of Climate Change on the natural environment, on the economy, to human settlements and physical infrastructure and on human health. It also aims at improving knowledge and understanding of Climate Change, while conducting systematic research.
