Target Groups

The project is aligned with GEF focal area CCM-3-8, i.e. “Foster enabling conditions for mainstreaming mitigation concerns into sustainable development strategies through capacity building initiative for transparency.”The project will build and strengthen the institutional and technical capacities for national reporting under ETF of Paris Agreement. This entails providing detailed information on a biennial basis on GHG inventory, implementation and achievement of NDCs, adaptation needs and actions, support needed and received. The domestic MRV system to be developed under Component 3 is designed to avoid duplication and result in an efficient system that will reduce time burdens and costs to state institutions in data collection and analysis. Strengthened MRV will provide policy makers with information/ data which could be further used towards making climate-friendly investments and mainstreaming climate concerns with the developmental sectors – resulting in wider overall benefits towards achieving low carbon resilient economy while meeting the basic and aspirational developmental challenges of its growing population. Thus, this project will contribute towards India’s efforts to meet the objectives of UNFCCC. This will also contribute towards India meeting its climate change-related SDGs especially SDG-13 by supporting the integration of climate change measures into national policies, strategies and planning: building knowledge and improving education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning, and promotion of mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management in the country. The project will also contribute to achieving SDG5 by supporting empowerment of women in decision-making, land ownership and through gender-sensitive budgeting.
