  • Key Outcome 13 Environmental Sustainability
  • Strategic Areas
  • Develop appropriate policies to guide sustainable
  • Effective management of natural resources and the
  • Ensure optimum benefits from the efficient use of
    natural resources
  • Provision and dissemination of scientific and
    technology-based information for accuracy and
    timeliness of investigations, early warning
    systems and predictions to support the
    sustainable management of natural resources and
  • Maintain the balance among the three pillars of
    development throughout the national development
  • Reduce biodiversity loss.
  • Key Indicators
  • Percentage of land area covered by forest
  • Number of trees provided under the community
    forestry programs
  • Percentage increase in lives saved and increased
    numbers of secured properties reduction of
    percentage losses
  • Number and area of protected areas rises
  • Proportion of fish stocks within safe biological
  • Proportion of terrestrial and marine areas
  • Proportion of species threaten with extinction
  • Proportion of total water resources used.
  • CO2 emissions, total per capita and per 1 GDP
    (PPP)/Index of GHG emissions
  • Consumption/index of ozone depleting substances.

  • Key Outcome 14 Climate Resilience and Disaster
    Risk Reduction
  • Strategic Areas
  • Ensure integration of climate change issues and
    disaster risk reduction into core national and
    sector plans, policies and budgetary processes
  • Undertake climate change impact assessments on
    sector plans and major investment initiatives to
    identify necessary adjustments and increase
  • Strengthen the awareness and consultation on
    climate change at all levels including improved
    community engagement and understanding of the
    expected changes and proposed adaptation
  • Finalise and commence implementation of coastal
    infrastructure managements (CIM) plans
  • Strengthening planning and capacity for Disaster
    Preparedness with closer linkages between sector
    lead agencies and the DMO
  • Improve monitoring of climate change through
    centralized collection of data and information
    across all sectors to identify the direction,
    nature and pace of change and adapt plans
  • Develop appropriate financing modalities for CCA
    and DRR
  • Key Indicators
  • Number of sector plans integrating expected
    climate change impacts with identified
    adaptation strategies in place and being
  • Development of a monitoring framework and base
    line data for climate change impacts and
  • Progress in implementing CIM Plans
  • Information reports on climate change being
    regularly disseminated through the media and at
    public consultations.
  • Updated climate risk profiles

  • Agriculture Sector Plan 2011 - 2015
  • Strategy for the development of Samoa 2012 - 2016
  • Agriculture Sector Plan
  • Key Outcome 13 Environmental Sustainability
  • Fisheries Subsector Strategies
  • SPO 4
  • 4.1.1 Promote sustainable use of small Exclusive
    Economic Zone (EEZ) through sustainable catch
  • 4.1.2 Promote long-term sustainability of
    coastal fishery resources including the
    protection of mangroves and coral reefs
  • 4.1.3 Identify impacts of climate change on
    fisheries production and governance and develop
    mitigating strategies
  • 4.1.4 Promote Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries
    Management (TMDP, CBFM, NAPA)
  • 4.2.1 Develop strategies to mitigate sea safety
    during natural disasters and emergency situation
    (fisheries diseases outbreaks, securing fisheries
    asset, crew)
  • Key Outcome 14 Climate Resilience and Disaster
    Risk Reduction
  • Contributes to

  • Way Forward
  • Implementation of subsector strategies entails
  • Development of a functional implementation plan
    that clearly lays out prioritization of core
  • Identification of key measures to ensure
    achievement of Sector Policy Objectives
  • Due to the links as shown, successful
    implementation of subsector strategies lead to
    achievement of national priorities on
    Environmental sustainability and Climate
    Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction.
