Phase I – Black Carbon Inventory Support – Complete
In 2018, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development expressed interest in working with the Supporting National Planning (SNAP) Initiative to develop an integrated emissions inventory of greenhouse gases, short-lived climate pollutants and air pollutants. This work was launched with the intention of including SLCP and air pollution mitigation in the DRC’s 4th National Communication under the Paris Agreement.
To advance this project, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) provided technical support to develop an inventory using the LEAP-IBC model, and through regional workshops and regular online discussions.
A draft integrated emission inventory of greenhouse gases, SLCPs and air pollutants report was drafted and is pending endorsement by the Ministry.
