In 2009, Malaysia announced to voluntarily reduce its emissions intensity of GDP by up to 40% based on 2005 levels by 2020, conditional upon transfer of technology and financial support from developed countries. According to Malaysia’s Second National Communication, the energy sector accounted for about two-thirds of total national greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2000. The emission is expected to increase in view of the growing energy demand. Many efforts have been implemented to reduce emissions from the sector. Such efforts can be further enhanced through initiatives undertaken as nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) that are expected to contribute to the overall national mitigation aspiration.
The Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Project in Malaysia aims to assist the country in enhancing national GHG inventory system (Outcome 1), promoting the uptake of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMA) (Outcome 2) as well as designing measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) framework (Outcome 3) that ultimately serves national priorities for low emission development strategies. This consultancy services is part of Outcome 2.
