Thai-German Climate Change Policy Programme
As of: August 2019
Objective and activities
In its NDC, Thailand is committed to ambitious mitigation targets and defines priority areas for adaptation to climate change. For a successful NDC implementation it is necessary to improve individual and institutional capacities as well as cooperation between ministries and authorities. The climate programme starts there and supports Thailand with a cross-sectoral approach, including the operationalization of the NDC and anchoring in 5 sectoral plans, the implementation of the NDCs at the sub-national level, the establishment of a MRV system, the mobilization of funds for NDC implementation and the extension of international cooperation. As a key project with interface function of IKI, the programme ensures the cooperation between the IKI projects. By promoting NDC implementation, the programme supports the decarbonisation of the Thai economy in the long term and strengthens the adaptability of Thailand to the effects of climate change.
