Panama - Deliver National Methane Roadmap and SLCP Roadmap focused on black carbon

Future
started:
2022

This project aims to support Panama’s Ministry of Environment in developing and endorsing a short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) and methane roadmap with the aim of strengthening Panama’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and air quality plans, as per CFP1.

Project reference: Panama - Deliver National Methane Roadmap and SLCP Roadmap focused on black carbon [PA-22-002]

Objectives

The project will achieve the following by its completion: 

  • The government has increased capacity to:
    • Assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement mitigation measures, and to track progress.
    • Coordinate SLCP planning
  • The government endorses the methane roadmap.

What we're doing

The main project deliverables are: 

  • An SLCP roadmap that includes an emissions inventory , emissions projections, and mitigation assessments to strengthen consideration of SLCPs, especially black carbon, in Panama’s NDC and air quality plans. 
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. The work to be delivered should build on the SLCP roadmap.
  • A capacity building workshop to present results of the project, validate the roadmap, and to train relevant stakeholders on monitoring black carbon emissions.
