CLIMATE CHANGE LEGISLATION IN ZIMBABWE- AN EXCERPT (Nachmany, M. / Fankhauser, S. / Davidová, J. et al. LSE)

Zimbabwe signed and ratified the UNFCCC in 1992. It has since submitted two national communications, in 1998 and 2013 with financial support from the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). Prepared by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Management (MENRM), the Second National Communication (2013) assessed vulnerability and adaptation capacity to climate change for key sectors in economy. MENRM has overall responsibility for environment related matters and control of air pollution, including GHGs. The National Climate Change Office within the MENRM is responsible for climate change co-ordination, supported by a multi-sectoral National Climate Change Committee. The Climate Change Office has initiated the formulation of a comprehensive National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS): the draft strategy of 2013 includes a national action plan for adaptation and mitigation, analysis of strategy enablers, climate change governance and implementation framework.
