The Climate Change and Development Authority, or CCDA, is working with key government agencies and private stakeholders to develop a National Adaptation Plan.

The Plan aims to reduce Papua New Guinea’s vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, by building capacity and resilience.

Head of CCDA, Ruel Yamuna, said a unified strategy is key to capturing the steps needed to address climate change.

According to CCDA, the National Adaptation Plan aims to address the needs and context with specific solutions to what PNG communities face as climate change takes its toll.

The workshop is reviewing existing policies and programs that have policies to address climate change and its effects.

Jacob Ekinye, Director of Adaption and Projects Division of the Climate Change and Development Authority said: “There are many important institutions working hard to fight climate change – we hope that by engaging in a workshop environment we can harness our collective power for a stronger response. We appreciate the support provided by UNDP to further this process.”

The two-day workshop will furnish a draft plan by today.
