This project responds to the request by the Maldives’ Ministry of Environment, Climate Change and Technology to provide training to strengthen institutional capacity to develop transportation emission inventories to provide more specific data (i.e., beyond LEAP) to build more accurate inventories. The project builds on the Maldives’ National SLCP Plan, and other government policies such as the National Action Plan on Air Pollutants.
Expected project outcomes
Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:
- Maldives’s government has increased capacity to evaluate and implement transportation measures based on improved transportation emission inventories.
Minimum required outputs
The project should deliver at a minimum:

- Capacity development in support of transportation emission inventories applying guidelines and tools (e.g., excel spreadsheets)
- At least two workshops with relevant stakeholders to support development of more accurate transportation emission inventories for the Maldives
