This 2014 decision by the Government of the republic of Moldova adopts the Government's Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and the action plan to implement it. The decision includes provisions for the implementation of the plan to be monitored by the Ministry of the Environment and tasks the central government with developing sectoral strategies to implement the plan and local governments with taking action to meet the plan's targets.

The strategy aims to increase the capacity of Moldova to adapt and respond to actual or potential climate change effects and has three specific objectives: 1. Create by 2018 the institutional framework in the field of climate change that would assure the efficient implementation of adaptation measures at the national, sector and local levels. 2. Create by 2020 a mechanism to monitor the climate change impacts, the related social and economic vulnerability and for the management/dissemination of the information on risks and climate disasters. 3. Assure the development of climate resilience by reducing at least by 50% the climate change risks and facilitate climate change adaptation in six priority sectors by 2020.
