Jamaica: Climate change policy framework

The Climate Change Policy Framework for Jamaica is intended primarily to support the goals of Vision 2030 by reducing the risks posed by climate change to all of Jamaica’s sectors and development goals.

It outlines the objectives, principles and strategies that the country will employ in order to effectively respond to the impacts and challenges of climate change, through measures which are appropriate for varying scales and magnitudes of climate change impacts. A number of Special Initiatives have been identified for early implementation.

Specifically, the goal of the Policy Framework is to create a sustainable institutional mechanism to facilitate the development, coordination and implementation of policies, sectoral plans, programmes, strategies, and legislation to address the impacts of climate change.
