Project description

The project will facilitate the conditions for the Government of Guatemala (GoG) and local actors to formulate the Third National Communication (3CN) and the First Updated Biennial Report (1BUR) by strengthening governance and inter-institutional arrangements as a basis for coordinated management of national efforts on climate change (CC) and in compliance with the agreements reached before the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The project will contribute to systematize information related to national circumstances, generate information for the Inventory of Greenhouse Gases (INVGEI), specifically Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU for its acronym in English) and in the Energy sector ; Transport sub-sector, and to integrate the information of the sectors; Energy, Industrial Products, Agriculture, Forestry and Other Uses of the Land and Waste to present the fifth, sixth and seventh INVGEI. The 3CN and 1BUR, will generate information through specific regional and national studies related to vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation that respond to the needs of the country, providing inputs that serve for the analysis and review of policies, regulations, strategies and plans in the matter of Climate Change (CC) and to properly guide the formulation and execution of programs and projects. Although the project is not decisive, it will contribute to the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 (SDG 13), the goals in terms of CC 2030, the National Development Plan 2032 and the General Government Policy 2016-2020.
