Phase I – Black Carbon Inventory Support – Ongoing
In 2018, the Ministry of Water Resources, Development and Climate of Zimbabwe expressed interest in working with the Coalition's Supporting National Planning (SNAP) Initiative to develop an integrated emissions inventory of greenhouse gases, short-lived climate pollutants and air pollutants. To begin this process, a national team of staff from relevant sectoral ministries was assembled to identify ongoing and potential policies and programmes related to mitigation and to facilitate data collection. The Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) provided technical support to develop the inventory using the LEAP-IBC model through regional workshops and online discussions. In order to ensure integrated air pollution and climate planning, the data and analysis used was consistent with Zimbabwe’s 2015 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and greenhouse gas inventory reports.
Further support being planned under the umbrella of, and with funding from, the NDC Partnership Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP). With technical support from the Stockholm Environment Institute, a national team will develop a national model developed to assess greenhouse gas and SLCP emissions and mitigation potential and a report presenting the results of the analysis. The objective is to increase in capacity within national institutions to continue to develop and update this model for use in subsequent assessments and to track progress.
