Fifth National Development Plan
The third pillar of Namibia's Fifth National Development Plan concerns environmental sustainability. Section 4.2 outlines Namibia's climate change goals, including its quantitative emissions reduction targets through 2022. The overall goal of the environmental and climate change management component of Namibia's Fifth National Development Plan is to manage the environment sustainably and improve the country's climate resilience. It identifies four challenges to this goal: population growth and industrialization, weak governance and institutional capacity, vulnerability to climate change, and the centralization of environmental management functions.
