Project context, objectives and description

The Government of Mongolia has officially commenced its NDC update and elaboration process to update its intended NDC target of 14% into a more ambitious target, with a hope to mobilize increased green financial resources from Green Climate Fund (GCF) and other climate related funds.  

This project is particularly important for GGGI Mongolia in order to lock-in our involvement in NDC and Paris Agreement related activities in Mongolia, which will enable us to take part in the NDC related bankable project identification and be included as one of the technical country partners in GCF Country Programming. 

Objective of the project is to support Government of Mongolia to update its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) in the Agriculture and Industrial Processes and Product Use (IPPU) Sectors and provide technical support for its elaboration mechanism for official submission in 2020 in accordance with Paris Agreement on Climate Change and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).  

GGGI will be responsible for developing and supporting NDC update and elaboration processes for Agriculture and IPPU sectors (transport and building sectors can be added if there are additional resources), with technical backstopping provided by GIZ and NCI as part of their existing project. Agreement has been reached among the GGGI Mongolia, GGGI HQ (MRV Team), Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) and GIZ & NCI for regular and on-demand technical backstopping with free of charge and other cost sharing arrangements such as joint workshops and combined events.
