The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), acting as an implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), is also providing assistance to the B&H Government in the preparation and implementation of the GEF funded projects “Fourth National Communication under the UNFCCC and Third Biennial Update Report” project) and “Integrated reporting and transparency system of Bosnia and Herzegovina” (CBIT project).
The objective of project “Integrated reporting and transparency system of Bosnia and Herzegovina” is to develop a National Transparency Framework which will enhance implementation and abide by the transparency provisions of the Paris Agreement.
B&H became a Party to the Paris Agreement in February 2017, and now needs to put in place robust climate and energy policies that will enable the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) pledge and its potential strengthening in the coming years. This policy framework should create enabling environment for decision-making on future objectives, targets, and priority policies and measures for mitigation.
In line with the GEF project cycle and in order to further strengthen the institutional capacities in Bosnia and Herzegovina in climate change field, the project identification form was developed and approved by the GEF in May 2018 https://www.thegef.org/project/integrated-reporting-and-transparency-system-0
This project aims to provide Bosnia and Herzegovina with an overarching structure across all sectors and key institutions that will ensure high quality in its transparency instruments, as well as creating the capacities to foster the improved adoption of MRV related data for policy decisions in the segment of climate change.
Additionally, it will ensure the establishment of a robust MRV/Enhanced transparency system from its design to its implementation stage, providing the country with robust and reliable data flows that will shape the design and monitoring of mitigation policies and actions consistent with the enhanced Transparency Framework under the Paris Agreement.
The CBIT funding will ensure an improved governance structure in BiH that would define clear roles and responsibilities within the institutions, standardized data protocols and methodologies.
The CBIT funding will also be used to improve the MRV of different key sectors within BiH. For this, new data and data flows will be generated via innovative surveys and studies that will provide periodic information for the development and monitoring of mitigation actions and policies. Moreover, specific training and capacity building in data analysis will provide the sectorial institutions with new tools to tap into data sources that historically have not been gathered.
