Project outcomes

Inventory for GHG emissions enhanced and quality and quantity of data improved through improved collaboration between Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) and sector based institutions on the GHG emissions inventory

Capacity of stakeholders strengthened on data collection and processing protocols, and procurement of state-of-the art equipment and tools

Fully developed data collection, integration and sharing platform for use by stakeholders as a one stop source of information for transparency reporting

Vital Signs

 

Knowledge Management Approaches

Increase awareness and participation of multiple stakeholders (e.g. the private sector, local communities, non-government organizations) in land-use mitigation actions, decision-making, and monitoring to increase knowledge sharing

Extensive engagements will be carried out in the process of development of the data platform, and training of focal points and key stakeholders

Lessons learnt and best practices will also be shared and scaled out through peer exchange programs for stakeholders on transparency activities

A national inventory of greenhouse gas emissions will be established and made publicaly available.

Description of Support Provided

The support provided by the ICAT project focusses on:

  • Developing a methodological framework to assess GHG impacts of policies and actions for energy related sectors
  • Review of sectoral mitigation actions included in the NDC implementation plan, in order to assess gaps and barriers for establishing the MRV system for energy sector
  • Build capacity of national stakeholders in the design and implementation of an MRV system for energy sector
  • Design an MRV system for the energy sector with the engagement of stakeholders
