BACKGROUND / PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Zimbabwe’s climate is becoming increasingly variable, and the low level of resilience and capacity to address impacts makes it one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change in Southern Africa. It is expected that climate variability and change will exacerbate these challenges, increase pressure on natural resources, impact ecosystem services and agricultural productivity, and disproportionately affect the poor. The Government of Zimbabwe recognising this fact has embraced a low-emission and climate-resilient post-COVID-19 recovery pathway that mainstreams climatic change issues in the country. The National Development Strategy 1, Low Emissions Development Strategy (LEDS), revised Nationally Determined Contribution and the draft National Adaptation Plan (NAP) all indicate to the need to support green growth/low-emission, climate-resilient development, shift in production and consumption processes to emit fewer greenhouse gases and promote sustainable development which all need financial resources. Implementation of 38 economically viable mitigation abatement activities options in the LEDS is estimated to cost USD 6.3 billion by 2030. On the other hand, implementation of mitigation options in the revised NDCs would need approximately USD 4.8 billion wholly conditional on international financial support thus making mobilisation of both domestic and international climate financial resources imperative both adaptation and mitigation actions. It is against this background that UNDP in Zimbabwe in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry and Ministry of Finance and Economic Development seek to commission the development of a report aimed at mobilisation of both domestic and international climate financial resources to finance adaptation and mitigation actions identified in the listed documents above.
