Preparation of Second Biennial Update Report to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Project Summary


The goal of this project is to assist the country in mainstreaming and integration of climate change consideration into national and sectoral development policies by providing continuity to the institutional and technical capacity strengthening process.

This project will additionally improve the sustainability for preparation of future Biennial Update Reports and will facilitate the reporting requirements to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Biennial Update Reports are reports to be submitted by non-Annex I Parties, containing updates of national Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventories, including a national inventory report and information on mitigation actions, needs and support received.

Such reports provide updates on actions undertaken by a Party to implement the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the status of its GHG emissions and removals by sinks, as well as on the actions to reduce emissions or enhance sinks.
