To contribute to an increase capacity among the beneficiary countries to engage in a low carbon and resilient development.
The main objectives of the project are: in the diagnostic phase, a detailed definition of the necessary capacity building actions; in the implementation phase, the delivery of training to contribute to increased capacity with the drafting of Low-Carbon Strategies and guidelines that ensure measurability, reporting and verification (including the definition and implementation or the improvement of the National Systems) in Cape Verde, Mozambique and Sao Tome and Principe. The project tasks are implemented in close collaboration with national teams and other stakeholders in the beneficiary countries (through participation and exhaustive consultation), to create an enhanced domestic capacity and thus provide an increased impact of the project.
Therefore, the EBAC project plans to identify and implement capacity building activities to suit the national circumstances of each country in order to enable them to develop and implement Low Carbon and Resilient Development Strategies; design Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) with complementary identification of projects that can be framed in emissions crediting and trading systems; to set guidelines for Measuring, Reporting and Verifying mitigation actions (MRV); register the actions with the United Nations, if so desired; create or strengthen National Systems for the timely production of National Communications, Biennial Update Reports and Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories and create a guide for the analysis of vulnerability to the impact of climate change and evaluation of adaptation options in the context of low carbon resilience development.
The project started in October 2013 and it can be prolonged until the end of 2017.
