Ghana - Deliver National Methane Roadmap and develop NDC implementation plans on SLCP mitigation

This project will provide technical assistance to Ghana’s Environmental Protection Agency to develop a national methane roadmap and advance short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation plans through the implementation of their existing Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) commitments. This project will build on previous CCAC-funded activities in the country. 

Project reference: Ghana - Deliver National Methane Roadmap and develop NDC implementation plans on SLCP mitigation [GH-22-001]


The project aims to achieve the following by its completion: 

  • Ghana’s government endorses and implements the NDC implementation plan.
  • Ghana’s government endorses the methane roadmap.
  • Ghana’s government and other key institutions have increased capacity to assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress.
What we're doing

The project should deliver at a minimum:  

  • NDC implementation plans focusing on high-priority SLCP measures including updating SLCP analysis in key sectors (up to 2050), assessing cost of implementing mitigation measures, developing implementation pathways/plans for priority SLCP measures (including those included in the updated NDC), developing proposals for funding, and integrating SLCPs into monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) and transparency reporting.  
  • A methane roadmap following a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat. The methane portion of the updated SLCP analysis should serve as an input into the development of the methane roadmap (which will focus on the waste, agriculture, and oil and gas sectors). Information from the SLCP national plan and updated SLCP analysis should be used as a technical basis for the roadmap.
