Policies, measures and actions on climate change and
environmental protection in the context of COVID-19 recovery.


Last update 3 Mar. 2023


Emergency measures in the short term (a few months to one year) to address concerns that have directly emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic and may include forced action.
Socioeconomic measures in the medium term (one to a few years) with an environmental and climate focus to “build back better” from COVID-19, and usually involves planned, intentional action.
Paradigm shifts and measures in the long term (more than a few years to a few decades) toward redesigning current socioeconomic and sociocultural systems to be sustainable and resilient.

1.Climate mitigation measures

2.Climate adaptation measures

  • Water

    Recovery Redesign
    Develop and promote resilient water resources management: All sectors are vulnerable to climate change as a result of water scarcity. Actions under this measure are expected to increase their adaptive capacity by providing the tools and knowledge to better manage water resources and to reduce their sensitivity by increasing the availability of water. The Government of Zimbabwe is implementing actions which: (i) support the use of best available hydro-climatic information to improve water resource management (water resource assessment), (ii) explore options to increase water supply from surface and underground (water demand management and water use), considering gender differences in water supply and access, and (iii) support the management of extreme events (integrated flood management, drought management).
