Pakistan - Deliver a National Methane Action Roadmap 

This project will support Pakistan’s Ministry of Climate Change in developing a methane roadmap building on previous CCAC projects.

Project reference: Pakistan - Deliver a National Methane Action Roadmap [PK-22-002]


The project will achieve the following by its completion: 

  • The government has demonstrated increased capacity for national greenhouse gas emissions inventory development.
  • The government includes SLCP mitigation measures in its NDC implementation plan and inventory development process.
  • The government endorses a methane roadmap.
What we're doing

The main project deliverables are:

  • A methane roadmap including:
    • Capacity building workshops and support tools to train relevant people in the Ministry of Climate Change on the development of a national greenhouse gas emissions inventory for methane emitting sectors that will support Pakistan’s future reporting under the UNFCCC on Pakistan’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation. This includes training on refined data methodologies.
    • A methane mitigation assessment for key priority measures, including an assessment of the institutional arrangements, the policy and regulatory environment, the cost of implementation, and a monitoring and evaluation framework for methane mitigation as a contribution to the preparation of Pakistan’s NDC implementation plans. An ongoing LEAP-IBC analysis could be used as input.
    • A portfolio of project ideas for methane mitigation in Pakistan considering the inputs generated by the mitigation assessment.
