Project outcomes

Argentina is able to elaborate and share consistent and accurate national and sub-national GHG inventories.  

Stakeholders within the National Climate Change Cabinet provide and exchange information for domestic tracking of mitigation actions and support received. 

Stakeholders within the National Climate Change Cabinet use consistent GHG emissions modeling, economy wide scenarios, and analysis of interactions for climate policy decision making.
