Project description

This project aims to assist Bosnia and Herzegovina in the preparation and submission of its Fourth National Communication to the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC and its Third Biennial Update Report; for the fulfillment of its obligations to the Convention under Decision 17 / CP. 8, decision 2/CP17 and other related guidance. The FNC will update and strengthen information related to the national circumstances and institutional arrangements, constraints and gaps, national greenhouse gas Inventory, vulnerability to climate change and steps taken to adapt to climate change, mitigation actions and domestic MRV and information on public awareness, education, training, systematic research and observation and technology transfer. The project will also increase capacity of entity and state level government to respond to international environmental obligations by strengthening and giving continuity to the institutional and technical capacity development that has been initiated and sustained by the National Communications and Biennial Update Reports processes to date.
