MADAGASCAR: SAVING BIODIVERSITY

Array ( [1] => anonymous user )
 

Madagascar is exposed to recurrent climate risks which are affecting its economy and its population’s living    conditions. The consequences of climate change have been felt for the last 20 years as evidenced by the extended periods of drought, rainfall variability and intensification of cyclones and floods associated with cyclonic disturbances.

In submitting its action plan to COP21, the government of Madagascar showed that it was equally concerned with both adaptation to and mitigation of the effects of climate change, two different but complementary approaches. The choice of the adaptation sectors adopted by the country (agriculture, management of coastal regions, health) as well as an approach based on ecosystems (forests, mangroves, biodiversity, water resources) may, in fact, have significant benefits for mitigation.
