Climate Change Policies

Reduce GHG emissions by 32% (in relation to GHG emissions BAU levels (2010)) by 2025 and reduce GHG emissions by 45% (in relation to GHG emissions BAU levels (2010)) by 2030 conditional to external support in the sectors of energy, transport and waste.

Adaptation: Priority Areas:

1) communities’ livelihoods and infrastructure from sea-level rise, sea surges, typhoons and rainfall intensity;

2) Water and food security issues from changing rainfall patterns and ocean acidification;

3) Health issues from rising temperatures and prolonged drought periods, as well as the potential for increasing peak wind speeds and changes to ocean circulation patterns.
