in Minsk (Belarus)
Organised byMinistry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus & Clima East: Support to Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Russia and ENP East Countries & Technical Assistance to Support the Development of Green Economy in

Belarus is in the process of developing a system for the measurement,
reporting and verification (MRV) for greenhouse gas emissions for large
emitters in line with its obligations under the UNFCCC and the Paris
Agreement. These enterprises not only release GHGs, but also a range of air
quality (AQ) pollutants. Some countries have MRV systems which jointly
consider GHGs and AQ pollutants. The purpose of this meeting is for the
national government and other stakeholders to exchange views on the design of
its MRV systems in line with the Paris Agreement implementation plans of
Belarus. The Clima East representatives – experts of the project and its
Expert Facility - will provide assessment and insights about MRV system
design options applicable for Belarus.

The United Nations Convention on Climate Change was adopted in 1992 as one of the three conventions at the “Rio Earth Summit”.

25 June 2015 to 26 June 2015
in Riga (Latvia)
Organised byClima East Policy Project

Participants of the workshop will present their country positions for the 2015 Agreement and focus on the planned Intended Nationally Determined Contributions which countries are preparing in line with decisions adopted by the COP in Warsaw (2013) and in Lima (2014).

From2 February 2017
in Tbilisi (Georgia)
Organised byorganized and provided under the support of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection of Georgia and Clima East Project

The Paris Agreement sets out a global action plan to keep global temperature
rise this century well below 2°C and to drive efforts to limit the increase
even further to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The agreement also aims
to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate
change. The objectives of the Paris Agreement are in line with Georgia’s
national development priorities such as energy efficiency improvement, energy
security, food production security and others.

The NDC and its implementing measure will provide clear directions for action
and ensure that the synergies between climate action and national development
priorities are utilised and the Paris Agreement is implemented effectively.
Therefore, active participation and collaboration is required among the
national authorities and stakeholders who are covering virtually all sectors
of economy, particularly those, which produce significant emissions of
greenhouse gases, and those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

The conference plans to reach governmental authorities and other stakeholders
(business community, civil society and academia) with the purpose to enhance
their common understanding of the opportunities and the challenges that the
implementation of the Paris Agreement creates for our economy and society. In
particular, the conference will discuss the options for coordinating sectoral
policies and measures and ensuring that they bring national development on a
low-emission and climate-resilient pathway.
