National Policy and Response Strategy on Climate Change
The National Climate Change Policy and Response Strategy is a framework which will establish specific provisions for dealing with climate change issues, understanding the extent of the threat and putting in place specific actions to mitigate potential impacts.
- The impacts of climate change in Liberia require the widest cooperation and participation in an effective and appropriate national response comprising mitigation and adaptation measures that are efficient, concrete and targeted.
- Liberia’s vulnerability to the adverse effects of climate change makes adaptation a national priority issue, demanding policy direction at the highest level, with full commitment attached.
- The strategy further provides guidance on integrating climate change issues into national development planning processes at national, county, district and local levels for effective coordination.
