The CCDP was endorsed and launched by the president demonstrating commitment and leadership from highest level. Also, the consultation process was hosted and coordinated by the Office of the President under the direct leadership of the Vice-president, who personally launched it internationally at COP 16 in Cancún.
The CCDP process was a country driven process, completely aligned to the then ongoing initiative of developing a National Development Strategy. The former ended up being approved by law and included an official mitigation goal of reducing GHG emissions in 25% by 2030, a direct input from the CCDP.
Around 20 ministries and government institutions (including the President’s office as host) were actively collaborating in an intense participatory consultation process requiring coordination across these different ministries.
The development of this Plan involved stakeholders across sectors including NGOs from the forestry, agriculture and environment sector, which interacted with energy, waste and cement private sector actors in a fluid and cooperative way.
The CCDP sets a very clear long-term vision combined with clear definition of short and medium-term policy goals and measures. It explicitly identifies “quick win” sectors were in the short term relevant emissions cuts are more feasible, in this case the cement and waste sectors.
