Executive
Policy
Passed in 2018
The National Climate Change Policy establishes 22 strategies in order to ensure that stakeholders address climate change impacts and their causes through the identification, mainstreaming and implementation of adaptation and mitigation measures, while promoting sustainable development.

Its main objectives are 1) promote climate-resilient, social, economic and environmental development, 2) explore low-carbon development opportunities, nationally and internationally, in order to promote the sustainable use of resources, 3) strengthen a framework that promotes climate change governance, international cooperation, capacity building, research and systematic observations, clean technology development, transfer and use, education, training and public awareness. 

The policy sets out  1) strategies that include legal and other institutional arrangements, 2) resources mobilization strategies and advocates for private sector investment, 3) recommends a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework. The objective of the document is to enhance effective policy implementation, ensuring appropriate utilization of resources, communication of results to decision makers and stakeholders for future action.

The implementation of this policy will undergo an independent external evaluation in five years time. The recommendations resulting from this evaluation will then feed into the revision process for the new policy.
