In order to ensure implementation of the National Climate Change Strategy, the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) including strategic principles and goals on greenhouse gases emission control and adaptation to climate change for the period of 2011-2023 was prepared and published in July 2011.

The preparation of the Turkey’s NCCAP was based on the policy of the Ninth Development Plan (2007-2013) which states that: “Turkey’s national vision within the scope of Turkey’s circumstances, a National Action Plan setting greenhouse gas emission decrease policies and measures with the participation of all related stakeholders will be prepared to fulfil her commitments under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change”. Therefore NCAAP was prepared on the basis of the sectors specified both in the Annex-A of the Kyoto Protocol and in the UNFCCC National Communication and Greenhouse Gas Inventory reporting formats, includes the goals and actions on energy, buildings, transportation, industry, waste, agriculture, land use and forestry, climate change adaptation and cross-cutting issues.

NCCAP enlists sets of objectives for energy, building, industry, transportation, waste, agriculture, land use and forestry sectors.
