Maldives - Deliver trainings to increase integrated GHG, SLCP, and air pollutant mitigation action [MV-22-001]

Opening Date: 8 June 2022
Closing Date: 30 June 2022
Estimated project cost: US$ 40,000 – 50,000



The aim of this project is to support the Maldives’ Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Technology in building the required capacity for more thorough reporting to the UNFCCC and to ensure evidence-based decisions are made at the policy level. This will build on previous CCAC projects.

Expected Project Outcomes

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

Outcome Indicator Target

1. The Maldives’ government has increased capacity for SLCP action and an increased number of staff performing SLCP analysis

Number of government entities with a demonstrated improved capacity for SLCP action 1

Minimum required outputs

The project should deliver at a minimum: 

  • Training workshops on modelling software for short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) analysis (e.g. LEAP) and on the development of greenhouse gas emission and mitigation assessments. This will increase the number of trained staff able to report to UNFCCC, coordinate across agencies, identify solutions for SLCP mitigation, and provide a framework for investments into such solutions.

Applicants are encouraged to propose additional outputs as needed to ensure the expected project outcomes are achieved.
