About this project


The specific objective of the project is to support SOCAR in the implementation of its Climate Change Mitigation Strategy by promoting and upscaling GHG mitigation measures through a programmatic NAMA approach in the low-carbon end-use sectors, where pilot investments will be directed into low energy and low carbon technologies that are so far missing on a large scale on the Azeri market.


To support the development, implementation and monitoring of NAMAs in the low-carbon end-use sector, in order to build upon a strong national commitment for the reducing the energy demand of oil & gas end use sectors.
