Mitigating emissions of entire countries and sectors

Under the Paris Climate Agreement, the governments of most countries are now preparing their concrete plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, so-called “Nationally Determined Contributions” (NDC).

In developing countries specifically, there is a need to move towards the implementation of these low-emission development plans. This also includes the design of sectorial action plans and measures, so-called “Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions” (NAMAs).

 

Low-emission development: What we offer

We support government agencies and international organizations in drafting and implementing their low-emission development strategies and plans:

  • Preparation and analysis of national mitigation plans (NDCs)
  • Preparation of NAMA concepts
  • Connecting donor and recipient governments for financing of measures

 

Technology and financial expertise under one roof

Governments and international organizations rely on our support for the development and marketing of emissions mitigation plans. First Climate also has extensive experience in the monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of emission reductions resulting from such plans.

 

Reference project: Lebanon

On behalf of the United Nations Development Programme, we have developed two NAMA concepts for the Lebanese Government. In the transport sector, a car scrappage program will rejuvenate the country’s fleet by replacing obsolete and emissions-intensive vehicles. In the waste sector, different measures will be implemented for waste-to-energy conversion and reduction of methane emissions.
