GGGI is working alongside several of its member countries to fulfill the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement (Nationally Determined Contributions). With countries expected to submit their revised commitments in 2020, the Government of Mongolia is assessing the possibility and conditions to raise the ambition of its current targets and has requested GGGI Mongolia to support the revision of its NDCs in two sectors: Agriculture and IPPU (Industry), as part of a consortium of development partners.
On June 13, 2019, and under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism and Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry (MOFALI), GGGI Mongolia organized a Stakeholders’ sectoral Consultation Meeting to introduce the Agriculture sector’s emissions baseline scenario, possible GHG emissions reduction pathways. Representatives of MOFALI, government and non-government organizations, international organizations and projects, science and research institutes participated in the meeting.
The participants highlighted the need to define Agriculture sector GHG emissions baseline and mitigation targets using Tier 2 emission factors and provided a number of valuable comments and initiatives for the development of adaptation measures, which will be one of the focus points of the next sectoral consultation meeting.
