Zimbabwe Country Report 2010, Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation Preparedness in Southern Africa (Chagutah, T. HBS/HBF)

This report is the result of an initiative by the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBF). It is aimed at supporting the demands of state and non-state southern African actors for climate change adaptation finance and the efficient administration of such funds. The report details the findings of a desk study evaluating the state of knowledge on climate change vulnerability and adaptation preparedness in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe currently has no specific policy response to climate change (2010). Instead, fragmented responses are implied in a battery of sectoral policies, including those relating to environment and natural resources management, water resources management, agriculture and food security, and disaster management. There exists a need for the definition of a specific policy response to climate change. There is also a need to mainstream climate change adaptation in the policies and work programmes of various government ministries, and to harmonise existing uncoordinated and fragmented pieces of legislation and strategies aimed at enabling and enhancing an adaptive response to climate change in the various sectors of the economy.
