National Development Plan 2010-2014: PNACC, ECDBC, ENRREDD+, REDD+ (R-PP)

Key Information
Description: 
National Development Plan 2010-2014: National Plan for Adaptation to climate Change (PNACC), Colombian Strategy for low-carbon Development (ECDBC), National Stategy for reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (ENRREDD+). The main objective of the PNACC is to reduce the risk and socioeconomic impacts associated with climate change in Colombia. The final document was presented in 2014, and includes (i) Conceptual framework and guidelines on adaptation to climate change; (ii) Roadmaps for regional plans, (iii) risk measurement protocols; (iv) guidelines for including climate change in land use plans; and (v) a portfolio of adaptation actions. The ECDBC work team is composed by representatives of the industrial, energy, mining, transport, housing, waste and agriculture. The objectives of the ECDBC are (i) Identify actions to prevent the rapid growth of GHG emissions in key economic sectors, (ii) develop mitigation action plans for each sector, and (iii) develop the tools for the implementation of the plans, including monitoring and reporting systems. Colombia has about 60 million ha of forest, (53% of the territory), and a destruction rate of 500 000 ha/yr. The government initiated the actions to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation with the creation of ENREDD+ program, with a time horizon of 4 years. So far, the program has identified the social, economic and environmental issues related to forests and climate change, which are presented in the document Proposal for Preparation of REDD+ (R-PP). In the next stages of the program, the identified actions will be performed, such as implementation of forest monitoring systems, and integration of indigenous communities in the program.
