1.1 UNDP/GEF Green Cities project will apply the Practice Guide to Green Urban Development Planning while developing the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
[Added: 2019/01/16] [Last Updated: 2021/01/25]
UNDP CO, Environment, Energy and Climate Change Cluster 2020/12 Completed The elaboration of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) for Chisinau is being finalized. The Practice Guide has been taken into consideration and its parts integrated in the draft SUMP. History
1.2. UNDP CO will inform interested partner institutions in the energy sector and relevant people in Chisinau City Hall, including current Mayor, on (i) Practice Guide to Green Urban Development Planning and (ii) Public Green Procurement Guideline and advocate for their application
[Added: 2019/01/16] [Last Updated: 2020/02/07]
UNDP CO, Environment, Energy and Climate Change Cluster 2019/12 Completed The Green City Action Plan designed by EBRD and the National Program of investments in energy efficiency drafted by EIB have considered the Guides designed by the ESCO project. Moreover, UNDP has shared this documents with the new Chisinau Mayor (elected in November 2019) and new staff in the City Hall, to be considered as basis for developing the Sustainable development concept of the Chisinau Municipality. History
2. Recommendation:

In the future, when the competitive market of the energy service providing companies will be created, the EE retrofits under the EPC likely will become the main modality (such trend is observed e.g. in Ukraine). Therefore, continuation of awareness raising campaign by the UNDP is recommended.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/01/16] [Last Updated: 2020/12/05]

The recommendation is well noted and agreed. ESCO Moldova project had a catalytical role for setting the foundations and better prepare the energy market for EPC and ESCO and will continue to promote the awareness on new financial mechanisms in energy efficiency
