Environment and Climate Change:

Domestication of the National Climate Change Act 1:

Adaptation and incorporation of the National Climate Change Act 1 into the state legislative framework.

Fiscal Transparency:

To strengthen effective citizens’ participation, and access to the budget and other public-related documents, including the audit process.

Therefore, the success of the Action Plan hinges on the continued collaboration and dedication of all involved stakeholders.
