Project description

The immediate objective of the project is to assist the Government of Turkey in the preparation and submission of its 7th NC and 3rd BR to the UNFCCC for the fulfilment of its obligations under the Convention as Annex I Party. The objective of the project is expected to be achieved via following outcomes: i) National Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory system is strengthened and national GHG inventory is updated for years 1990 to 2015/2016 in line with NC and BR requirements; ii) National circumstances are reviewed and updated, institutional arrangements relevant to the preparation of the national communications and biennial reports on a continuous basis are activated and described; iii) Finance, technology transfer and capacity building needs, constraint and gaps are identified and recommendations for addressing the needs are provided; iv) Information on research and systematic observation is reviewed and updated; v) Information relevant to the Article 6 activities on education, training and public awareness is reflected; vi) Using best practices and latest available data, assessment of sectors and interventions contributing to GHG emission reduction (mitigation) at national level is conducted and described; vii) Climate change vulnerability assessment, including recommended adaptation measures for priority sectors is reviewed and updated; viii) Support is provided for strengthening domestic measurement, reporting and verification system; ix) A web database including climate change studies carried out by national universities is developed; x) 7th NC and 3rd BR are compiled, approved by the Government and submitted to the UNFCCC in line with UNFCCC reporting guidelines; xi) Appropriate Monitoring and Evaluation Framework is in place for quality assurance.
