Environmental Conservation and Climate change

Environmental Conservation and Climate change

A safe, clean, healthy, and sustainable environment is essential to the full enjoyment of a wide range of human rights, including the rights to health, food, water and sanitation. Climate change threatens the enjoyment of these rights.

The key objective of the programme is provision of a secure environment sustainably through promotion, conserving and protection of the environment. The mandate of the OPRD includes conservation and protection of national wildlife and water catchment area conservation, control and protection. It further consists of re-afforestation programmes and agro-forest and restoration of strategic water towers.

Our Strategic Interventions include the following:

Environmental Conservation and Afforestation

The country is faced with serious environmental degradation as a result of population pressure, pollution, soil erosion, charcoal burning and logging, prolonged drought and forest fires. We champion programs towards environmental conservation such as environmental conservation awareness programs and greening program. The greening program will target to increase forest cover to at least 10 percent.

Adapting Climate Change Mechanisms

OPRD is working with the government to put in place measures to adapt to climate change by developing climate change and adaptation policy and guidelines to mainstream environment and climate change. The Government will strengthen coordination of climate change related activities. In addition, we initiate partnerships with development partners and tap on climate change funding and carbon credits for conservation of environment and increasing forest cover.

Disaster Preparedness and Risk Mitigation

Disaster is a serious disruption in the functioning of a society that results in widespread human, social, economic or environmental loses which exceed the capacity of the affected society to cope using its own resources. Disaster preparedness enables a community to respond effectively to disasters while disaster risk mitigation aims at reducing damage caused by natural hazards like floods, wild fires and droughts.
