The program, passed a week before a major climate summit in Glasgow, spans 14 ministries and will implement the Environmental Protection Ministry’s strategy to reduce carbon emissions.

The plan includes incentives for developing innovative technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, preparation for the ramifications of climate change, improvement of the treatment of organic waste, and funds for switching public transportation to electric vehicles and improving bicycle infrastructure.
