The aim of this project is to support the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development in strengthening short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) planning efforts and in advancing mitigation actions.
Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:
1. DRC’s government has demonstrated:
|Number of government entities with a demonstrated improved capacity for SLCP action||1|
2. DRC’s government endorses the methane roadmap.
Number of action plans, roadmaps, strategies, or other future plans with SLCP targets or mitigation measures formally adopted, endorsed, and/or implemented
The project should deliver at a minimum:
- Updated and improved SLCP emission projections and mitigation assessments in key source sectors, including an assessment of the institutional arrangements, the policy and regulatory environment, the cost and financing of implementation, and a monitoring and evaluation framework for mitigation as a contribution to DRC’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), its implementation plans, and monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) framework.
- A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat, building on the above-mentioned assessments.
- Capacity building workshops and support tools to train personnel in the Ministry and other relevant institutions focused on developing and updating a national inventory for SLCP emitting sectors, the development of mitigation assessments (i.e., using LEAP), and the integration of SLCPs within DRC’s climate change planning processes.
- A portfolio of projects (project proposals and concept notes) for SLCP mitigation in DRC, also considering the inputs generated by the SLCP mitigation assessments.
