Climate Changes

The pursuit of sustainable development in the face of climate change has become an imperative for governments, organizations, and societies worldwide. To address this pressing challenge, the implementation of climate-resilient green growth interventions has emerged as a crucial strategy. These interventions aim to foster economic growth while simultaneously safeguarding the environment and building resilience against climate-related risks.

Importance of Climate-Resilient Green Growth Interventions:

Climate change poses a significant threat to Enga’s socio-economic fabric, including its agriculture, water resources, and infrastructure. By embracing climate-resilient green growth interventions, Enga can effectively mitigate these risks while fostering sustainable development. These interventions encompass a range of strategies, including renewable energy adoption, sustainable land management, and climate-smart agriculture practices. By integrating these approaches, Enga can enhance its resilience to climate change impacts, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and promote a more sustainable and prosperous future.

Benefits of Climate-Resilient Green Growth Interventions

Implementing climate-resilient green growth interventions in Enga offers numerous benefits that extend beyond environmental protection. Firstly, these interventions can stimulate economic growth by creating new employment opportunities and attracting investments in renewable energy and sustainable industries. Moreover, they can enhance food security by promoting climate-smart agricultural practices, ensuring a stable and resilient food production system. Additionally, these interventions can improve public health by reducing air pollution and enhancing access to clean water and sanitation facilities. By embracing climate-resilient green growth, Enga can foster a more inclusive, prosperous, and sustainable society.

Key Objectives

The primary objective of climate-resilient green growth interventions is to strike a balance between economic growth and environmental sustainability. By adopting a holistic approach, these interventions aim to achieve the following key objectives:

Mitigate Climate Change: By promoting low-carbon technologies, renewable energy sources, and energy-efficient practices, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the adverse effects of climate change.

Enhance Adaptation: Climate-resilient green growth interventions prioritize the development of adaptive strategies and infrastructure to withstand the impacts of climate change. This includes measures such as flood-resistant infrastructure, drought-tolerant agriculture, and resilient urban planning.

Foster Sustainable Economic Growth: These interventions seek to stimulate economic growth while ensuring its sustainability. By investing in green industries, promoting circular economy practices, and supporting sustainable business models, we can create a robust and resilient economy.

Promote Social Equity: Climate-resilient green growth interventions aim to ensure that the benefits of sustainable development are shared equitably among all segments

Roadmap for Successful Implementation

To ensure the successful implementation of climate-resilient green growth interventions in Enga, a comprehensive roadmap had been developed. The roadmap should include the following key elements:

Policy and Regulatory Framework: Establishing a robust policy and regulatory framework that supports climate-resilient green growth interventions.

Climate -Resilient Growth assessed by GGGI

The Climate-Resilient Green Growth (CRGG) assessment shows that Enga Province is exposed to the effects of climate change, as evidenced in a rise in temperature and potential changes in rainfall. At the same time, the province’s population and economy are very sensitive to these phenomena, given their dependence on sectors that experience considerable impacts from climate change—particularly agriculture. Finally, low-income levels and a lack of essential infrastructure such as transportation, health, electricity, water, and sanitation also mean their capacity to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change is limited.

The CRGG assessment demonstrates that the Enga Province has ample opportunities for promoting climate-resilient green growth. Based on available data and research, and consultation with local stakeholders, the assessment identifies four priority areas for the province to enhance its resilience towards the severe impacts of climate change:



   Electricity supply; and


For each priority area, the assessment recommends several interventions that could help strengthen.
