This report has been prepared by the
World Bank for the Government of Romania as an output of the
World Bank advisory services program on climate change and
low-carbon green growth in Romania. In response to the
request, the World Bank quickly mobilized a team of sectoral
and climate change (CC) specialists and conducted rapid
assessments in six sectors - energy, transport, urban,
water, agriculture, and forestry, which were pre-identified
by both the Government of Romania and the World Bank as
areas significant to emission mitigation and or adaptation
to CC. The objective of rapid assessments was to quickly
evaluate climate risks and identify CC-related investment
priorities and necessary implementation support for the
2014-2020 operational programs. This document is the
stocktaking report of component A1. It provides an
introductory cover to the literature on CC, baseline for
Romania, institutional review of Romania and key European
Union (EU) requirements, as well as available data sets that
were identified in the given short-time span. Its purpose is
to support the government as a first stock of key climate
and green growth issues for Romania and summarize the
current situation. The report is structured as follows:
section one gives introduction, section two provides the
sectoral summary on the country background and
characteristics. Section three provides the baseline for the
CC and green growth challenges in Romania. Relevant climate
dimensions of Europe 2020 and existing EU regulations and
policies related to climate change are summarized in section
four. Section five provides an overview of national
strategies, regulatory framework, and organizational setup
for addressing CC in Romania. Background information on the
Romania 2014-2020 European structural and investment funds
(ESIF) programming and CC related aspects in the forthcoming
ESIF programming report are covered in section six. Finally,
section seven provides a CC relevant bibliography for
Romania that may serve as a tool for referring to key
literature in the field.
