Côte d’Ivoire – Deliver an agriculture sector strategy for SLCP mitigation

This project responds to a request made by the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development to develop an Agriculture Sector Strategy to mitigate short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in Côte d’Ivoire.

Project reference: [CI-23-004] Cote d'Ivoire - Deliver an agriculture sector strategy for SLCP mitigation. 

What we're doing

At a minimum, this project will deliver an Agriculture Sector Strategy for Côte d'Ivoire which includes a national study on the impacts of SLCPs, including ozone, on agricultural productivity that will serve as key input to Côte d'Ivoire's medium-term national strategic plan, as well as mitigation measures to prevent crop yield loss. It also aims to develop a more detailed assessment of SLCP emissions and mitigation pathways from the agriculture sector. It should also inform the SLCP mitigation measures and/or SLCP reduction targets in Côte d’Ivoire’s updated 2025 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).

Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion:

  • The Government of Côte d'Ivoire endorses the Agriculture Sector Strategy by project completion or shortly after.
  • The Government of Côte d'Ivoire integrates SLCP reduction targets and/or mitigation measures for the agriculture sector in its 2025 updated NDC.
