CPDI has established the Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Program, whereby public awareness is raised and attention of the Federal and provincial governments is drawn to policy gaps and implementation challenges, which explain the slow and inadequate response to causes and impacts of climate change. Expanding on its existing programs, especially those with focus on local governance, budgets and parliamentary / policy engagement, CPDI plans to strengthen its interventions in the area off climate change mitigation and adaptation, with special focus on advocacy for improved policy/ institutional framework, extension of technical assistance for improving coordination, oversight and management capacities of relevant official departments/ bodies, and facilitating public debates/ awareness and stakeholder dialogues.
