Ministry pushing for climate policies

Although the negative impacts of climate change occur across the globe, the government has not yet created any policies specifically designed to adopt to climate changes that could further deepen the rate of poverty, especially in rural areas. However, the environment ministry is drafting a decree that will require all local authorities to conduct scientific research on climate change to help them formulate measures needed to protect local communities. So far scientific research assessing the policies needed to cope with climate change has only occurred in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).
