Climate Change and Development Authority Corporate Plan 2018-2022
The Climate Change and Development Authority Corporate Plan 2018 – 2022 is the overarching strategic plan that sets the direction of the Authority for the next five years. The organisation invested the last five years (2013- 2017) in establishing a climate chamge policy and legal framework including the strengthening of its’ role as an Authority on climate change and development in Papua New Guinea. Having ratified the historic 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, Parliament enacted the United Nations Paris Agreement (Implementation) Act 2016 which progressed the transitioning phase of the institution from a government office in 2014 (Office of Climate Change & Development), to what is now the Climate Change and Development Authority since 2015. The organisation plans to complete the transition phase within the next five years.
This Corporate Plan is our blueprint designed to strategically focus the implementation of Papua New Guinea’s international, regional, national and subnational policies and legislations on Climate Change. This Plan will guide CCDA in achieving its strategic goals under the country’s Vision 2050, National Strategy for Responsible Sustainable Development for PNG (STaRs), the Medium-Term Development Plan III, Papua New Guinea National REDD+ Strategy, and pursuing its mandate under the Climate Change (Management) Act 2015 and the United Nations Paris Agreement (Implementation) Act 2016.
