Project title: Clima East: Support to Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Russia and Eastern Neighbourhood Countries

 

Brief description: The overall objective of Clima East is to support the ENP East countries and the Russian Federation so that they are better equipped for greenhouse-gas emission reductions and better prepared to deal with climate change impacts.

 

The specific objective of Clima East is to foster improved climate change policies, strategies and market mechanisms in the partner countries that are more in line with the EU acquis, by supporting regional cooperation and improving information-access to EU climate change policies/acquis.

 

The specific objectives of this project, which will form part of the overall Clima East project package,  are:

  • Strengthening of the capacity of policy makers to engage in and to implement the Kyoto Protocol and its potential successor, or other international agreement post-2012, through better access to information and expertise on EU climate policies and the emerging EU climate acquis;
  • Promotion of dialogue with the EU on climate change and support with approximation to the EU climate change and related climate and energy acquis;
  • Improve capacities to benefit from possible new or reviewed mechanisms resulting from the successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol;
  • Strengthening of capacity for strategic planning with regard to mitigation, including NAMA’s, GHG-related energy efficiency strategies and low-carbon strategies (where not covered by other donors and projects);
  • Strengthening of capacity for strategic planning with regard to adaptation to climate change;
  • Support to Non-Annex I countries for CDM and other financing mechanisms;
