This National Climate Change Policy provides guidelines for sectors to ensure that current and expected impacts of climate change are considered in their planning and implementation programmes. In addition, relevant sectors are encouraged to take up climate change mitigation initiatives as part of Fiji’s contribution to global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The goals of this climate change policy are: 1. to support the implementation of Fiji’s Roadmap for democracy and sustainable socio-economic development 2009–2014 under the People’s charter for change, peace and progress; 2. to promote integration of climate change issues in national planning, budgeting and implementation processes; 3. to provide guidance on government’s responses to climate change issues; 4. to guide sectors to develop appropriate climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies; 5. to support requests to regional and international agencies to provide resources and assistance in addressing national climate change issues; 6. to contribute to Pacific regional actions and to meeting international commitments.
