UNDP/GEF Capacity Building for Improving the Quality of Greenhouse Gas Inventories (Europe/CIS region)
Republic of Croatia is one of twelve countries participating in this regional project.
The main components of the project are:
Strengthened institutional arrangements for compiling, archiving, updating, and managing greenhouse gas inventories,
Sustainable inventory process created,
Enhanced technical capacity for preparing national inventories,
Improved methodologies and emission factors.
The project will initiate a regional programmatic approach developed to build capacity for improving the quality of data inputs to national greenhouse gas inventories, using the good practice guidance of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC). The project will build on the expertise gained during the preparation of the initial National Communications. By strengthening institutional capacity to prepare inventories and establishing a trained, sustainable inventory team, the project will help countries to reduce uncertainties and improve the quality of inventories for subsequent National Communications.
This will allow countries to improve national strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The project includes common activities for all participating countries carried out under a regional umbrella; countries may choose the remaining activities to carry out, based on national priorities. The approach has been built on the concept of key sources of emissions; this allows the approach to be replicated for use in other regions with only minor modifications.
