National Climate Change Policy (NCCP)
The NCCP's emphasis is on climate resilient development pathway as well as on low carbon growth. It proposes to integrate traditional knowledge with the current and emerging knowledge to tackle climate change. It proposes the establishment of a dedicated climate change research centre.
It outlines five priority areas to improve food security, to increase infrastructure and communities' resilience, to improve environmental management practices and ecosystems for greater biodiversity, to improve economic growth. Five unique focus areas are:
- Agriculture and food security
- Disaster preparedness and response
- Natural resource management
- Equitable social development
- Energy, industrial and infrastructural development
The Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation is the main monitoring the implementation agency. It proposes to establish a secretariat of appropriate technical and professional competence. Further, The National Environmental and Natural Resources Council, chaired by the Vice President, will also have an oversight.
