UNDP Montenegro, together with the Ministry of Ecology, Spatial Planning and Urbanism, is working jointly on preparation of the Montenegro’s Third Biennial Update Report.
The main goal of the project is to assist the country in mainstreaming and integrating climate change considerations into national and sectorial development policies by giving continuity to the institutional and technical capacity strengthening process, partly initiated and sustained by the National Communications.
The project is structured as a set of outputs and activities organized in four (4) components:
1. National circumstances, institutional arrangements, financial, technical and capacity constraints, gaps and needs
2. National GHG Inventory
3. Mitigation actions and domestic MRV system
4. Production of the TBUR report, monitoring and evaluation
Objective of the assignment
Duties and Responsibilities
In the area of MRV, within the SBUR, MRV conceptual framework was developed, which constitutes good groundwork for further establishment of domestic MRV infrastructure. Furthermore, a prototype of online MRV management portal was developed. This portal provides a management overview for the MRV system and consists of components that structure data, support good practice activities and reinforce the institutional memory. The portal provides a coordination platform for managing information on stakeholders, engagement activities, datasets, QA/QC activities, climate actions and vulnerabilities, impacts, wider benefits, document storage and improvements to the MRV system. The portal develops the communication between stakeholder organizations and allows MSDT to better link data to policies. Going forward, the portal will be an important aspect of the MRV system and will help to produce transparent outputs such as NDCs, BURs, NCs and NAPs.
The country is in a unique situation when it comes to its international obligations regarding monitoring, reporting and verification due to its concurrent status as a non-Annex 1 party to the UNFCCC, a Candidate Country for EU membership, and a Contracting Party of the Energy Community (EnC). Within the TBUR, an-depth analyses of national capacities (financial and human) to put its proposed MRV system into operation will be conducted.
Explore possibilities and provide recommendations for linking a prototype online MRV management portal to the official national platform.
