- Inventory Development Workshops will provide insight into ways to improve current estimates of emissions and abatement potential.
- CCAC partners will work directly with Federal Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Petroleum Resources and Department of Petroleum Resources staff to create a road map for developing policies for methane abatement. Support will also be provided in the form of regulatory text proposals and recommendations for using this work to inform Nigeria’s revised NDC.
- A final report and regulatory framework for implementation will be presented to the ministries and Department of Petroleum Resources at the end of the project. This report is will be used for the revision of the Oil and Gas section in Nigeria’s revised NDC report for 2020.
