Climate Change Response

Overview

Chapter five of the National Development Plan – 2030, refers to ensuring environmental sustainability and an equitable transition to a low-carbon economy. The environmental management sections will implement the following action toward this vision as part of its operations. - Support to renewable energy initiative where it is not harmful or pose little impact on the environment; - Promote climate change mitigation and adaptation within the IDP and its sector plans; - Support initiatives and projects that address climate change; - Ensure that new developments do address climate change impacts within the planning and operational phases.

The Overberg Climate Change Response Framework (CCRF) will be used as a guiding document to give effect to project to address climate change mitigation and adaptation, upon the adoption and revision of the CCRF by the ODM Council.

This CCRF is meant to give a strategic overview of climate change responses that is relevant for the Overberg region; accordingly, not all of the responses identified in this document will be implementable by the District and local municipalities alone. This document is therefore not only aimed at the District and local municipalities, but also civil society including the private sector and NGOs as well as National and Provincial government, and is intended to guide a wider Overberg climate change response informed by local knowledge. Climate change is however a transversal issue requiring consideration across all sectors.
