Democratic Republic of Congo - Strengthen SLCP planning and advance mitigation action 

This project will support the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development to strengthen short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) planning efforts and advance mitigation actions.

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

  •  DRC’s government has demonstrated:
    • Increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress
    • Increased knowledge on their institutional arrangements, policy and regulatory environment, and SLCP implementation cost requirements.
  •  DRC’s government endorses a methane roadmap.
What we're doing

The main project deliverables are:  

  • Updated and improved SLCP emission projections and mitigation assessments in key source sectors, including an assessment of the institutional arrangements, the policy and regulatory environment, the cost and financing of implementation, and a monitoring and evaluation framework for mitigation as a contribution to DRC’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), its implementation plans, and monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) framework.  
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat, building on the above-mentioned assessments. 
  • Capacity building workshops and support tools to train personnel in the Ministry and other relevant institutions focused on developing and updating a national inventory for SLCP emitting sectors, the development of mitigation assessments (i.e., using LEAP), and the integration of SLCPs within DRC’s climate change planning processes.  
  • A portfolio of projects (project proposals and concept notes) for SLCP mitigation in DRC, also considering the inputs generated by the SLCP mitigation assessments.
