Climate Change Policies

Adaptation: Priorities:

1) Protection of populations, through a risk-­prevention management approach, particularly in the most vulnerable areas;

2) Protection of natural heritage, biodiversity, forestry and fishery resources, through an ecosystem-­based adaptation approach;

3) Protection of climate-­sensitive production systems, such as agriculture and tourism, as well as high-­risk infrastructures;

4) Protection of the cultural heritage of the Kingdom through education and awareness actions, and efforts to preserve ancestral good practices in highly vulnerable sectors, such as water and agriculture.

Reduce GHG emissions by 32% (in relation to GHG emissions BAU levels (2010)) by 2030 conditional to external support in sectors of energy, industrial processes, agriculture, waste and LULUCF and to reduce GHG emissions by 13% from BAU levels by 2030 unconditionally.
