Project Overview

The Paris Agreement requires all Parties to set out mitigation and adaptation plans in a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) document submitted to UNFCCC. Every five years, nations are required to submit a revised NDC in which progress towards achieving the purpose of the Agreement must be reported. 

Burkina Faso, has to prepare the revision of the NDC in order to be ready in 2020, and has requested GGGI support to prepare a concept note to submit to

The Climate Action Enhancement Package (abbreviated CAEP, pronounced “cap”) which is a new offering of the NDC Partnership designed to deliver targeted, fast-track support to countries to enhance the quality, increase the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions (or NDCs). As implementing partner, GGGI is designated by the NDC and the Government to support the implementation of the requested activities for 2020.

By targeting the range of stakeholders involved across several layers of activities and stages of the NDC development and implementation, the project will create the necessary long-term capacity of these institutions to participate this and future iterations of NDC.  To raise the ambition of the NDC in future iterations, the country, and the key stakeholders must be able to not just understand their own sectoral emissions but their future trajectories and potential mitigation choices, with a capacity to make the choice between options based on own technical, human and financial capacity and evaluate opportunities for climate finance, such as any Article 6 mechanisms that could be made available to them.

Project Objectives

The project aims to enhance Burkina Faso NDCs revision, including by raising ambition, as part of the Paris Agreement’s NDC update process, by giving enough tools and knowledge to prepare the next generation of NDC.

Project Outcomes

Burkina Faso’s NDC is enhanced, including by raising ambition, as part of the Paris Agreement update process.

The realization of the outcome is achieved by the main following outputs:

  • Sector-specific action plans with gender mainstreaming and involvement of NGOs and CSOs are developed.
  • Consultation processes to initiate the identification of objectives, actors and their roles are conducted.
  • Capacity building workshops (sectorial; NGO, CSO and private) on data collection, processing and management methods are organized.
  • Costs & Benefits have been analyzed in Transports sector

Project Impact

Burkina Faso contributes effectively to the global GES reduction efforts.
