Argentina - Update and improve SLCP mitigation assessment and deliver a methane roadmap  

This project will provide technical assistance to Argentina’s Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development to update the short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation assessment and support  Argentina in meeting its methane mitigation targets. 

Project reference: Argentina - Update and improve SLCP mitigation assessment and deliver a methane roadmap [AR-22-002]


The project aims to achieve the following by its completion: 

  • The government includes SLCP mitigation measures in its NDC implementation plan and inventory development process
  • A methane roadmap for Argentina is developed and receives endorsement from the government
  • The government has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, assess the co-benefits of mitigation, and track progress


The main project deliverables are:  

  • Improved and updated SLCP emissions inventories which include the energy, waste, agriculture, and forestry sectors as well as emissions projection to 2050. 
  • Mitigation assessments as a technical basis for integrating SLCPs into current inventories, plans and strategies for air quality and climate change mitigation (e.g., NDC implementation plans, air quality strategy, greenhouse gas emissions inventory). Mitigation assessments should include an evaluation of the benefits of proposed mitigation actions, and a pathway for resource mobilization to ensure the implementation of priority SLCP measures.    
  • Deliver a methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Deliver capacity building workshops and support tools to train key experts and institutions to continuously update the SLCP analysis to assess mitigation priorities and track implementation progress.
