Palau: Climate change policy - for climate and disaster resilient low emissions development
The vision of this Policy is “Happy, healthy, sustainable and resilient Palauan communities in a changing world,” or “A Belau a kldmokl, mesisiich, moduades, e klekar.” To make this vision a reality, this Policy lays out objectives to 1) enhance adaptation and resilience, 2) manage disasters and minimize disaster risk, and 3) mitigate global climate change by working towards low emission development. This Policy establishes a single integrated Government Policy with intervention and financing priorities.
This Policy was developed through a 2-year participatory process. It addresses ten sectors (Agriculture and Fisheries, Health, Finance/Commerce/ Economic Development, Biodiversity/ Conservation/Natural Resources, Critical Infrastructure, Utilities, Society and Culture; Good Governance, Education, and Tourism) and advises on both government and nongovernment action.
