Expected project outcomes

Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion: 

Outcome Indicator Target

1. Gabon’s government has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress.

Minimum required outputs

The project should deliver at a minimum:  

  • An integrated SLCP emission inventory and elaborate recommendations for key SLCP mitigation measures to be integrated into Gabon’s revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and NDC implementation plan.  
  • A monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) framework on methane for the agriculture and waste sectors. This project will involve collecting data to develop and improve SLCP emission estimates and applying improved emission factors for key sources sectors.
