Zimbabwe: National climate policy

The National Climate Policy formulation was based on and guided by robust science, stakeholder consultations, review of the current plans, strategies and policies, legal and regulatory analysis. The Policy addresses four thematic areas which are clustered as follows: (1) Weather, Climate Modelling and Change, (2) Vulnerability and Adaptation, (3) Mitigation and Low Carbon Development and (4) Enablers/Cross Cutting Issues.

The priority issues enclosed in the Policy include data collection and management, information sharing, climate research, inter-agency coordination, domestic incorporation of international, regional and multilateral climate change instruments, vulnerability assessments and adaptation interventions, innovations and technologies for mitigation, climate finance, technology transfer. Enablers and crosscutting issues are integrated in all the different sectors within the policy and these include capacity building, training, and public awareness, gender, disaster risk management, and climate governance.

Coordination is a prerequisite for any effective national policy, and thus the National Climate Policy provides a framework that calls for inter-agency cooperation, governance systems and a means to integrate and mainstream climate change into different socio-economic sectors. Based on this National Climate Policy, strategies shall be formulated and their effectiveness monitored with regards to achieving a climate resilient nation that pursues a low carbon development pathway.
