Context

The Government of Botswana regards climate change as a significant threat, as the country is experiencing increased variability in both temperature and rainfall. Botswana is therefore developing a climate change policy, strategy and action plan. The country aims to take into consideration newer technologies that have entered the market since Botswana completed its 2004 Technology Needs Assessment and incorporate these as it develops a legally binding framework for action.

Requested CTCN Response

To provide a framework enabling the government to strengthen legal and policy measuress related to adaptation, clean/renewable energy and public transport alternatives. 

Expected Results

The creation of a legally binding commitment to cut emissions of greenhouse gas by at least 15% by 2030.
