In 2021 the Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) will start work on Norwegian Financial Mechanism for the period 2014-2021 “Integration of climate change policy in sectoral and regional policies”.
Aim of the project is to improve national climate change policy planning and promote its integration into sectoral and regional policy.
During the project implementation it is planned to develop additional climate change policy planning tools, such as developing a regional data collection and reporting system to promote climate change policy planning and implementation at regional level. It is intended to renew and improve Latvia's climate change scenario for 2100, in order to ensure policy planning in line with the latest forecasts.
The project foresees the integration of climate change policies into sectoral and regional policies and activities, including the assessment of current practices and the development of recommendations to integrate climate change mitigation and adaptation aspects in sectors such as finance, insurance, construction of buildings, roads and railways, land use planning and re-planning.
The project will be carried out by the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Regional Development in partnership with the CSB, the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre and the Norwegian Environment Agency. The project is planned to be implemented until 28 September 2023.
