Chile: Plan nacional de adaptación al cambio climático

The national plan for adapting to climate change is constituted as the articulating instrument of Chilean public policy of adaptation to climate change, whose mission has been defined as:

To strengthen Chile's capacity to adapt to climate change by deepening the knowledge of its impacts and the vulnerability of the country. To generate planned actions allowing minimization of the negative effects and taking advantage of positive effects to its economic and social development, whilst ensuring its sustainability.

This plan delivers the guidelines for adaptation in Chile and provides the operational structure for the coordination and coherence of the actions of different sectors and different territorial administrative levels. It considers that the adaptation can be carried out at the level of a specific sector, at a multisectoral level, at the regional level and in a transversal way.

Objectives:​

1. Establish the conceptual framework for adaptation in Chile.
2. Establish the institutional framework under which the national adaptation plan and sectoral plans will operate.
3. Establish and update sectors that require adaptation plans and establish criteria and guidelines for their elaboration and implementation.
4. Define the cross-sectoral actions necessary for adaptation to climate change.
