Support to Kyoto Protocol Implementation (SKPI)

Project Description

Project implementation consists of Inception, Main and Final Phases:

1)The Project begins with an Inception Phase in order to plan together with the EC Task Manager (TM), PC representatives, multi-laterals (e.g., UNDP, UNEP, EBRD, etc.) and other stakeholders and beneficiaries (e.g,, industry associations) and review their needs and order of priorities establishing a modus operandi for the management of the Project;

2)The Project’s Main Phase includes the attainment of all the Project Results and thus reaching the Project Purpose. The Main Phase begins after two-three months after the Project’s commencement (depending on the timing of the IR delivery) and ends two months prior to the expiration of the Project’s life. Specific activities are necessary and sufficient to achieve corresponding Project Results;

3)The Final Project phase will start 2 months prior to the end of the Project execution period. During this Phase Project Team will complete the Final Project Report based on comments and suggestions received at the Final Project Workshop. The Final Report will include all the major Project deliverables and will provide all the necessary information about the project, including lessons learned.

Project Objective

To assist the Partner Countries in combating climate change, both by extending the use of the mechanisms attached to the Kyoto Protocol and by supporting the formulation of appropriate mitigation and adaptation strategies in each country.

Specific Objectives

A) Reinforced awareness of the technical ministries, relevant government departments, and the general public, as well as institutional capacity (in particular at the level of the Designated National Authorities - DNA), in relation to climate change in general and to the KP mechanisms in particular, which also partly builds upon and develop past actions supported by the EC and by other donors;

B) Strengthened interest in, and responsiveness of the economic stakeholders (particularly industry and energy utilities) to, climate-change-related issues and the funding mechanisms (CDM, JI) available under the Kyoto Protocol, focusing particularly on energy efficiency;

C) Climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies formulated and implemented, whenever requested by the PC.

Expected Results

  • Enhanced knowledge in the Partner Countries of EU legislation and of the economic instruments available to improve energy efficiency in the context of each country`s economic and social development and climate change mitigation plans;

  • Improved capacity of the DNA to implement programmatic CDM.
    Better acquaintance of PC`s technical departments (Ministries of Energy, Industry, Construction, Transport, etc) with the instruments available under the Kyoto Protocol;

  • Issuing of guidelines on programmatic CDM;

  • Development of public awareness campaigns using the EC climate change campaign entitled "CHANGE" as a possible reference;

  • Exchange of information between the PC through an energy efficiency network (whenever possible identifying, enhancing and using suitable existing networks, e.g. the Energy Charter Protocol on Energy Efficiency and Related Environmental Aspects) and by contributing to the INOGATE web portal and developing its energy-efficiency- andclimate-change-related content in relation to the current project;

  • Improved skills of the negotiators to efficiently participate in post-2012 negotiations;

  • Increased awareness among policy makers of the importance of the post-Kyoto regime.
