Côte D'Ivoire - Expand the SLCP planning and implementation process while increasing capacity for methane mitigation 

This project will support Côte d’Ivoire’s Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development to advance its short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) planning and implementation processes and increase institutional capacity for methane mitigation.

Project reference: Côte D'Ivoire - Expand the SLCP planning and implementation process while increasing capacity for methane mitigation [CI-22-001]


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

  • Côte d'Ivoire’s government has increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress.  
  • Côte d'Ivoire’s government endorses the methane roadmap. 
What we're doing


The main project deliverables are:  

  • An improved and updated SLCP emissions inventory, emissions projections, and mitigation assessments as technical basis for including SLCPs in Cote d’Ivoire’s revised NDC, NDC implementation plans, greenhouse gas emission inventories, MRV/monitoring and evaluation frameworks, and air quality management processes. This work should also set out how to mobilise resources for implementation of SLCP priority measures. 
  • Capacity building workshops and support tools to train relevant persons within key organisations such as CIAPOL (Centre Ivoirien Antipollution) on the further development of mitigation assessment and tracking of implementation progress building on the SLCP analysis. This would include support to: 
    • Update the SLCP 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 Cote d’Ivoire to update it into the future. 
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. Based on methane related assessments, this roadmap will include the development of implementation pathways for methane mitigation measures, assessment of the cost of implementation, and monitoring and evaluation framework for methane mitigation. This would be aligned with the NDC implementation plans for its updated NDC.
