Zimbabwe: National climate change response strategy

Zimbabwe’s Climate Change Response Strategy mainstreams climate change through a sectorial approach to ensure that each sector implements adaptation and mitigation actions. Each sector will therefore be able to direct its project proposals to the appropriate funding mechanism.

The Response Strategy is divided into six sections. These include an introductory section which comprises a brief profile of Zimbabwe and the Vision, Mission, Goal, Strategic Objectives, Pillars and Guiding Principles of the National Climate Change Response Strategy (Section 1).

This is followed by a synopsis of climate change across scales from global, regional, national to local level (Section 2); sector specific challenges, risks and impacts as well as relevant adaptation and mitigation measures (Section 3); strategy enablers such as capacity building; technology transfer; climate change education, communication and awareness (Section 4); climate change governance (Section 5); and finally a section on Action Plans, Implementation Framework and Resource Mobilization (Section 6).

The National Climate Change Response Strategy provides a framework for a comprehensive and strategic approach on aspects of adaptation, mitigation, technology, financing, public education and awareness. It will help to inform Government on how to strengthen the climate and disaster risk management policies.
