Background

 

Botswana has developed a draft Climate Change Response Policy which will be supported by a Strategy and Action Plan to operationalize the Policy.

 

Climate change and climate variability already affect physical processes in Botswana, leading to changes in temperature, rainfall patterns, increased intensity and frequency of extreme weather events like droughts and floods. The country’s social and economic development objectives are at risk if climate change is not addressed. At the policy level, Botswana is committed to a sustainable development and resilient pathway, being signatory to global conventions such as the UNFCCC, CBD, Agenda 21 and others. Recently, Botswana has also been leading African initiatives on sustainability, such as the African Sustainability Summit of 2012, and has endorsed the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative.

 

The Government of Botswana represented by Department of Meteorological Services (DMS) with support from United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is looking for experienced firms or consortiums (details thereof to be clearly articulated) to undertake the task of developing the NCCSAP.
