Brunei Darussalam is adopting a whole-of-nation approach through the adoption of the Brunei National Climate Change Policy, BNCCP, to achieve a low carbon and climate-resilient nation. According to Minister of Development, this requires policy adoption across different sectors, and commitment by all stakeholders through careful planning and implementation. Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Ingenieur Awang Haji Suhaimi bin Haji Gafar stated this during the launch of the Environmental Education Tour Project held virtually. Yang Berhormat also underlined ten key strategies have been outlined in the BNCCP and four of them are playing a role in the Environmental Education Tour Project, including Awareness and Education. Climate education is key to reduce the impacts of climate change and to ensure a strong, sustainable economy.
