The Green Technology Applications for the Development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC) project was initiated to generate direct GHG emission reductions from at least five Malaysian cities. The objective of the project is to facilitate the implementation of low carbon initiatives and showcase a clear and integrated approach to low carbon development.
Malaysia intends to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of GDP by 45% by 2030 relative to the emissions intensity of GDP in 2005. The urbanisation rate of Malaysia increased from 66.5% in 2005 to 74.3% in 2015. Cities in Malaysia are significant contributors to the country’s GHG emissions. Cities and states have struggled to translate the national GHG emission reduction agenda into local action. This is due to lack of capacity and resources to undertake city-level greenhouse gas inventories. Cities such as Putrajaya, Iskandar Malaysia and Hang Tuah Jaya have developed city-level GHG inventories.
The Ministry of Environment & Water (KASA) through the GTALCC project is currently developing an online city level GHG emissions reporting system which will be used as a platform for local authorities to report their city level GHG emission on an annual basis.
The intended outcome of this training is to build capacity of officers at the local authorities and relevant federal and state agencies to understand the fundamentals of GHG accounting and familiarize with the Global Protocol for Community-Scale Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories (GPC) and Common Reporting Framework of the Global Covenant of Mayors (GCoM).
This work is part of component 1 of the project which is policy support for the promotion of integrated low carbon urban development, which will enable cities to implement and adopt integrated low carbon urban development plans and programmes
