Moldova joined the Coalition in 2016 to raise national awareness about short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), increase its mitigation actions, and strengthen its institutional capacity to reduce SLCP emissions. It is represented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment and aims to engage key stakeholders to incorporate SLCP reductions into its national planning processes and increase financial resources to mitigation activities.

Moldova recognized the importance of reducing methane, HFCs, and other SLCPs in the 2020 submission of its updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. Revised targets included a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 70 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, up from 64-67 percent committed under their first NDC (NDC1).

The country is involved in the CCAC’s Breathe Life Campaign and the Heavy-Duty Vehicles, Household Energy, Waste, and Supporting National Planning (SNAP) initiatives. Under the Heady-Duty Vehicles initiative, Moldova developed an Auto Fuel Economy Database to establish fuel economy baselines for registered vehicles, and to serve as a basis for policies and regulations on market fuel standards.
