EU4Climate Project (Project) helps governments in the six EU Eastern Partner countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine - to take action against climate change. It supports countries in implementing the Paris Climate Agreement and improving climate policies and legislation. Its ambition is to limit climate change impact on citizens’ lives and make them more resilient to it. EU4Climate is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2019-2022.
The objective of the Project is to support the development and implementation of climate-related policies by the Eastern Partnership countries that contribute to their low emission and climate resilient development and their commitments to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. It identifies key actions and results in line with the Paris Agreement, the "20 Deliverables for 2020”, and the key global policy goals set by the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Project will also translate into action priorities outlined in the Eastern Partnership Ministerial Declaration on Environment and Climate Change of October 2016.
The following results will be achieved: (i) Finalized/up-dated nationally determined contributions and national mid-century strategies and communicated to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), (ii) Improved inter-institutional awareness and coordination at political and technical level of the Paris Agreement and the corresponding national commitments, (iii) Established or strengthened measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems, with countries getting on track with Paris Agreement transparency requirements, (iv) Establishment of concrete sectoral guidelines for the implementation of the Paris Agreement in each of the Eastern Partners, especially in the field of energy (v) Advanced alignment with EU acquis as provided by bilateral agreements with EU and in the context of the Energy Community Treaty, (vi) Increased mobilization of climate finance, and (vii) Enhanced adaptation planning.
The ambitious objective to make a strong commitment to transform into low-carbon economies requires a holistic approach, where climate change is mainstreamed into development policies, plans and programmes across all sectors of the economy. Climate change is still too often seen as a purely environmental issue and it is of utmost importance to strengthen coordination between different parts of the government and to ensure ownership of sectoral ministries for the process.
Energy sector is the main source of GHG emissions in Armenia and the main sector being addressed by the NDC. Mainstreaming of climate in the energy policies will be a strong priority for the mainstreaming component. Taking into account however the previous and ongoing assistance provided to Armenia by other projects and donors to avoid overlaps.
The overall objective of the consultancy is to support the project in designing actions towards mainstreaming climate change in energy sector in line with objectives of EU4Climate project: identify gaps, needs, opportunities, and priority directions, and develop recommendations on mainstreaming climate change in energy sector’s planning processes; and contribute to communication with national and international partners.
