Project context, objectives and description
Because 30% of greenhouse-gas emissions are generated by buildings, the building sector represents a significant opportunity in terms of energy efficiency and emission reductions. Accordingly, green buildings are solutions to mitigation of climate change. They are proving to be an effective “upstream” strategy to reduce environmental impacts and reduce long-term community costs.
The Green building readiness program is designed to contribute to create an enabling environment to green building mainstreaming into major governmental projects and relevant policy documents to promote energy efficiency and resource efficiency in building by minimizing energy use, saving water resource, reusing wastes, reducing GHGs impact and creating green jobs. It is initiated as part a component of the Senegal Green Secondary City Development Program to support the government’s efforts for sustainable green growth, poverty reduction, gender equality, social inclusion, environmental sustainability and economic growth. It also covers the entire value chain of GGGI: Green impact of the strategy, Sector/sub-sector strategy & planning and Design, finance and implementation. As part of Senegal Green secondary city development Program, the Green Building Program will increase energy and water efficiency and protect human health as well as it will contribute to the integration of inclusive economic growth and environmental sustainability, which is the belief GGGI was founded on.
The realization of the Green Building Readiness Program is affected by the main following output: The Green building readiness program is implemented to strengthen and mobilize stakeholders’ skills through an agreed action plan.
The project will unfolds around 5 activities: i.) identify green building’s policy gaps and opportunities in Senegal; ii.) benchmarking on national & international Green initiatives; iii.) organize an expert working group on green building in Senegal; iv.) develop a Knowledge sharing & capacity building initiative including training sessions on green buildings and networking activities and v.) development of the Implementation plan for the national green building program.
