Benin - Strengthen SLCP planning and implementation while increasing capacity for methane mitigation

CCAC Funded
Implementing partners

Benin has developed an SLCP inventory with the support of the CCAC and also benefited from the Institutional Capacity Building Program for SLCP Reduction. This has helped state institutions and civil society to take SLCPs into account in development projects, plans and strategies, but has not provided a clear roadmap for reducing SLCPs. 

To update Benin's SLCP inventory and provide a roadmap for reducing SLCPs, Benin’s Ministry of Environment has requested technical assistance to support strengthening the national SLCP planning process, initiating SLCP implementation and increasing capacity for methane mitigation. 


This project aims to increase the capacity of the Government of Benin to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress. It also aims to produce a methane roadmap which the government can endorse.



To achieve these objectives the project will:

  • Create an improved and updated SLCP emissions inventory, emissions projections, and mitigation assessments as a technical basis for including SLCPs in Benin’s revised NDC, NDC implementation plans, greenhouse gas emission inventories, monitoring and evaluation frameworks, and for mobilizing resources for the implementation of SLCP priority measures. 
  • Conduct capacity building workshops and support tools to train staff of key organisations on the further development of mitigation assessment and tracking of implementation progress building on the LEAP analysis. This includes support to:  
    • Update the LEAP analysis in key sectors, including energy, industries, agriculture, waste and if possible, forestry and land  
    • Develop long-term 2050 emission projections 
    • Enter cost data to assess the cost of implementing mitigation measures  
    • Train a core team in Benin to update it into the future. 
  • Develop a methane roadmap based on agreed CCAC methodologies which will be aligned with the NDC implementation plans for its updated NDC.
