The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Management wishes to inform the general public about the launch of the National Climate Change Investment Plan. The launch will be conducted by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Management, Hon. Halima Daud at Sunbird Capital Hotel Marquee in Lilongwe on Friday, 25th April 2014 starting from 9:30 am.
The primary objective of the National Climate Change Investment Plan (NCCIP) is to increase climate change investments in Malawi. The NCCIP will serve as a resource mobilization tool, and it is hoped to increase sector funding. Specifically, the NCCIP aims at developing capacity of the environment and climate change management sector; increasing the protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources and increasing the productivity of the environment and natural resources. The NCCIP will achieve these aspirations through the vision and framework of action put in place by all key stakeholders. Furthermore, Climate change mitigation and adaptation potentially demand increased scientific prowess to deal with constraints such as decreased agricultural production, food insecurity, energy provision, loss of biodiversity, forests and natural habitats in Malawi. The NCCIP will therefore act as a platform for building human capacity to address these constraints.
The NCCIP will guide the Government of Malawi to allocate budgetary resources based on corresponding requirements and the optimal contribution of the environment and climate change management sector to the key priorities of the MGDS II. It will provide a framework for monitoring, reporting and accounting for the resources allocated to the sector by clearly providing strategic priorities and targets.
