Togo – Build national planning capacity to implement and monitor priority SLCP and methane mitigation measures

This project aims to assist the Ministry of the Environment and Forest Resources in implementing its short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) mitigation priorities building on building on previous CCAC projects.

Project Reference: Togo – Build national planning capacity to implement and monitor priority SLCP and methane mitigation measures [TG-22-001]


The project aims to achieve the following by its completion: 

  • Togo’s government and key national experts have increased capacity assess and model their SLCP emissions, to prioritize and implement SLCP mitigation measures, and to track progress in alignment with the revised NDC.
  • Togo’s government endorses a methane roadmap.
  • Togo’s government secures catalysed funding for SLCP action.
What we're doing

The main project deliverables are:  

  • Training to sectoral experts on planning actions to reduce methane and other SLCPs.
  • Training to experts to use the LEAP-IBC tool with the aim to:
    • Include SLCPs into greenhouse gas emission inventories during implementation of Togo’s revised NDC
    • Assess mitigation priorities and monitor progress in the implementation of mitigation measures 
    • Update LEAP analysis in key sectors, including developing emissions projections and assessing cost of implementation
    • Enable a national team to update the analysis in the future
  • A monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) framework for methane and other SLCP actions.
  • SLCPs and methane reduction integrated into Togo's revised Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation plans by estimation of costs of mitigation measures and integration of SLCPs into MRV and transparency reports. 
  • An improved greenhouse inventory for methane from the main sources: Energy, Agriculture, Waste
  • A methane roadmap that follows a methodology agreed with the CCAC Secretariat and is aligned with the national SLCP plan and NDC implementation plans. This should include an assessment of the methane mitigation potential and the cost and benefits of measures in the Energy, Agriculture, Waste sectors.
  • A portfolio of project proposals for implementing priority mitigation measures, considering the inputs generated by the mitigation assessment to be submitted to the national budget, funding agencies, and international donors.
