Namibia Second National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, July 2011


Description:

Namibia Second National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, July 2011.

Summary / Notes:

The Republic of Namibia ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1995, and thus became legally obligated to adopt and implement policies and measures to mitigate the effects of climate change and to adapt to such changes. This Second National Communication (SNC) to the UNFCCC follows and builds on the Initial National Communication (INC) submitted in 2002, and has been prepared in fulfillment of Namibia’s obligations to the UNFCCC under Articles 4 and 12. The Communication follows the UNFCCC guidelines and includes information on Namibia’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory for the year 2000, as well as measures to mitigate emissions and adapt to climate change in key sectors. The project was coordinated by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), through its Directorate of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and on behalf of the National Climate Change Committee (NCCC). The Global Environment Facility (GEF), through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), provided funding.
