MET. National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan 2013 – 2020


Description:

National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan 2013 – 2020.

Summary / Notes:

Climate change impacts directly on the entire chain of national development, and is likely to have negative impacts on efforts to achieve development objectives, including the long-term objectives and targets of Namibia's Vision 2030. Climate change is a complex and cross-cutting concern, thus there is a need for a holistic and integrated approach to developing a multi-sectoral (cross-practicebased) National Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan (NCCSAP) in order to implement the National Policy on Climate Change (NPCC), which was promulgated in Namibia in 2011. The NCCSAP has been developed as a result of the growing concern and discourse focusing on climate variability, and climate change risks and impacts affecting Namibia's social, environmental and economic developmental potential. The Strategy and Action Plan is a key instrument to operationalise the NPCC over a period of 8 years from 2013 – 2020 as a first comprehensive and practical tool which offers guidance on the mechanisms, means and manner in which implementation can happen. It is clear that climate change awareness, knowledge and understanding, both in terms of the risks, impacts and responses is rapidly developing, and therefore a mid-term review process of the implementation and impact of the NCCSAP is foreseen.
