Suriname’s National Climate Change Policy, Strategy and Action Plan (NCCPSAP) is a regulatory instrument which aims to implement climate resilience measures cross-sectorally in the coastal area and in the interior to reduce the country's vulnerability to climate change. It captures environment, spatial planning and disaster risk management across multiple planning themes. The concentration of population is particularly high in the coastal areas. They are most exposed to climate-related disasters, e.g. flooding due to poor drainage, mangrove deforestation and abundant rainfall. A main objective laid out in the plan, is to develop and implement law, policy and regulations for climate resilient spatial planning and management to promote urban growth.
