The National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) seeks to reduce Kenya’s vulnerability to climate change by increasing climate resilience and adopting a low-carbon development pathway. The plan summarizes an analysis of mitigation and adaptation options, which point to drought and water scarcity as key impacts of climate change. The country’s approach of transitioning to a low-carbon pathway is by adopting a cross-sectoral and high-level response to reduce risks and maximize opportunities.
Ghana’s economy is primarily composed of climate sensitive sectors of agriculture, forestry and energy. Recent observations show an increase in rainfall variability and frequency of extreme weather events. Coupled with the fact that less than 1% of all cultivated land is under irrigation, the climate change impacts on the populace of Ghana is projected to be manifold. To effectively deal with the projected impacts, the government’s strategy is to build climate resilience and sustainably manage natural resources of the country.
Like most island nations, Fiji is highly vulnerable to climate change. Currently the institutional framework of climate change activities in the country remains scattered across different government agencies. This report aims to build a platform for coordination between the various stakeholders, to formulate effective national and local climate change programmes.
Federates States of Micronesia (FSM) in order to ensure the rights of its people to live sustainably on the islands, aims to maintain its negative-carbon status through mitigating and adaptive actions in climate change. To do this, FSM plans to integrate climate change actions into all development activities and policies such as energy, infrastructure, agriculture, water resources, disaster preparedness, etc.
In compliance with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s requirement for parties, China prepared its National Climate Change Programme in 2007. Prepared by the National Development and Reform Commission, this report outlines objectives, policies and key areas of actions to address climate change for the period up to 2010. One such key area details adaptation actions to address climate change impacts in the sectors of – agriculture, forests and natural ecosystems, water resources and coastal regions.
In the Cameroon National Plan for Environmental Management climate change adaptation strategies, particularly in the area of coastal zone management, are discussed. Read the attached document for further details.
Cook Islands' Joint National Action Plan for Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation (JNAP) 2011- 2015
The Joint National Action Plan (JNAP) for Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation is a roadmap for building a resilient Cook Islands. The JNAP also helps to provide a more coordinated approach to dealing with disaster risk reduction and climate change issues by all agencies.
