legislation type Executive
Adaptation Framework

Passed in 2016
This document defines the government's transversal climate change policy. It defines principles, objectives and a range of instruments (fiscal, regulatory, communication) to implement. It further suggests corrections to bring to the Multi-annual National Plan for the Public Sector so that it takes into account climate change. 

Its objectives are: 1) Manage climate variability directly or indirectly attributed to human activity and the effects it generates on the population and the national territory, through an adequate strategy, programming, plans and projects at the national level, in accordance with the provisions of the Convention United Nations Framework on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol, 2) Incorporate adaptation to climate change as a transversal policy within the National Development Strategy 2030, and its articulation with other transversal policies, in particular environmental sustainability, risk management, territorial cohesion and gender equity, and 3) favour a political and institutional framework favorable to a low development in greenhouse gas emissions and resilient to climate change. Decree 269-15, which establishes the policy, is detailed in Chapter 5.
