Climate change mitigation framework is conducted at the national and sub-national levels to support and foster green development

Climate change mitigation commitments through natural climate solutions, by establishing multi-stakeholder collaboration commitment, creating enabling conditions, mobilizing resources such as technical capacity, scientific basis, and funding support, identifying policy gaps regarding jurisdictional scale, and facilitating green growth compact prototypes at the landscape level.

The strategy is conducted through 5 substrategies:
