Office close-up luncheon
Climate Change and Development Authority will be ending 2022 with a Christmas Luncheon at the CCDA Office on the 16th of December, 2022.
The National REDD+ Strategy (NRS) recogonises that REDD+ (reducing emission from deforestation and forest degradation) is not an activity or a project in itself but a goal to be achieved as part of PNG’s approach to sustainable and responsible development.
Papua New Guinea National Adaptation Plan
Climate change continues to negatively impact Papua New Guinea (PNG). This affects PNG’s growth trajectory and the socio-economic opportunities people may otherwise enjoy. Building resilience to climate change has featured in national dialogue and political commitments for over a decade. Recognized as an acute challenge for PNG, Government and partners have committed to mainstream climate action in their planning and delivery. Major policy initiatives such as Vision 2050 and the national Strategy for Responsible Sustainable Development have broadened efforts to include better natural resource management, conservation and sustainable growth. However, limited access to the country’s rural areas, its limited economic base, exposure to external shocks and limited capacity across Government remain challenges.
The National Adaptation Plan will support and address the Government’s climate change adaptation through:
- Strengthen institutional and technical capacities for iterative development of a National Adaptation Plan (NAP);
- Effective integration of the national climate change agenda into national and sub-national planning and budgeting processes;
- Design and sequence activities to promote effective use of Green Climate Facility (GCF) financing by enhancing synergies with existing initiatives and programmes in PNG, while avoiding duplication of efforts
Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Targets by 2030
A nationally determined contribution (NDC) or intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) is a non-binding national plan highlighting climate change mitigation, including climate-related targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions. These plans also include policies and measures governments aim to implement in response to climate change and as a contribution to achieve the global targets set out in the Paris Agreement. NDCs are the first greenhouse gas targets under the UNFCCC that apply equally to both developed and developing countries.
