EU4Climate

Project Description

“EU4Climate” project implemented by UNDP Azerbaijan, financed by EU aims to develop a low-emission and climate resilient economy in line with Paris Agreement in 6 Eastern Partnership Countries of EU Eastern Partnership Program which includes Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus. The main outcome of this project which continues until 2020 is to integrate low-emission and climate resilience objectives into the development strategy and program of the governments in six EaP countries in alignment with the climate policies and legislation of the European Union.

A robust domestic Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system will be established to inform the government and the international community of the progress of its NDC implementation.
