Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Although great efforts have been made by Department of Climate Change (DCC) to strengthen the technical and institutional capacity of the DCC and the various key partners, sustaining the efforts, momentum and commitments generated will require continual leadership at the national and state level for DCC to be able to deliver high quality reporting supplied with high quality baseline inventory data provided by key sectoral partners.

2

All outputs have been delivered and incorporated in the TNC report. Some outputs (3.5, 3.6, 3.8. 3.9, 5.1 and 5.2) will need further strengthening under FNC that is being prepared and planned for submission to the GEFSec for 2021 June Work Program. The total financing to be requested, including Agency fees is USD 3,047,500

3

Capacity of Climate Change Desk officers will need further strengthening so that data for FNC could be localized (State level assessments) based on local studies as far as possible for more precision. This will help develop demand driven adaptation strategies with the appropriate technologies for meeting the needs of the local recipients.

4

Inventory still incomplete as many activity areas are not covered due to severe lack of key activity data e.g., Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use (AFOLU).

5

Current efforts to strengthen the MRV framework has focused on improving the GHG Inventory Management System, Stakeholders’ engagement, data availability and archiving, for the overall TNC reporting. Institutionalizing reporting for future NC reporting requirements needs to be improved through Research & Systematic Observation, Education and Public Awareness.

6

Latest data on practically all socio-economic sectors are not available due to the absence of a proper environment statistical system. The Figure 1.3 in the TNC should be updated under 4NC to accurately describe the current national institutional arrangements
