Background

The goal of EU4Climate Project is to contribute to climate change mitigation & adaptation and the development towards a low-emissions and climate-resilient economy in line with the Paris Agreement2 in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. 

To realize this project goal, the following results should be achieved:  

Result 1:  Finalized or up-dated nationally determined contributions communicated to the UNFCCC; 

Result 2:  Improved inter-institutional awareness and coordination at political and technical level of the Paris Agreement and the corresponding national commitments;    

Result 3:  Established or strengthened MRV systems, with countries getting on track with Paris Agreement transparency requirements; 

Result 4:  Advanced alignment with EU climate acquis as provided by bilateral agreements with EU and in the context of Energy Community Treaty on climate matters that are not covered by the EU4Energy programme;  

Result 5:  Establishment of concrete sectoral guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Agreement in each of the Eastern Partners; 

Result 6: Increased mobilization of climate finance;  

Result 7: Enhanced adaptation planning.   

GD #1277/2018 nominates the Environment Agency of the Republic of Moldova as the national authority responsible for the implementation of the National System for Monitoring and Reporting (NSMR) for Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Other Information Relevant to Climate Change.

 

Overall, Moldova has an extensive system in place to assure an inventory of high quality. However, always external experts are appointed to develop the reports (National Communications, BURs, National GHG Inventory). This mean that ownership of data, as well as the information necessary on how estimates were done, is not within the national competent authority. There is no predefined team of inventory experts, nor is there a plan of establishing one in the near future. Currently, a team of experts (external consultants), that are financed through funds from GEF, provides reports. The respective knowledge is not passed on to the Environment Agency, or the experts responsible for taking part in the CoPs and decision makers, while the data is not stored by the competent authority.

 

With the support of EU4Climate project, in the current year, Environmental Agency will be trained in applying the QA/QC system and perform the inventory of the GHG emissions from the energy sector.
