The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is seeking support to improve Nigeria’s ability to measure emissions and emission reductions from the agriculture sector, especially through an enhanced national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory and systems for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of mitigation actions in the agriculture sector.
Estimated project cost: USD 150,000
- The government increases its capacity for GHG inventory compilation
- The government adopts the evaluation of mitigation options in the agriculture sector and integrates the recommendations in its NDC implementation plan
The project should deliver at a minimum:
- GHG and short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions estimates from the agriculture sector, including methane and black carbon from the livestock (enteric methane & manure), paddy rice and open agricultural burning, for an appropriate time series
- GHG and SLCP emissions projections into the future for a baseline scenario for the agriculture sector
- GHG inventory compilation training, including guidance and tools on using IPCC Tier 2 methods, and action planning to strengthen institutional and individual technical capacities of representatives from the Federal Ministry of Environment and Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and other national institutions to apply tools to assess agricultural GHG and SLCP emissions and update over time
- An evaluation of mitigation options in the agriculture sector to quantify their GHG emission reduction potential to provide recommendations as to the specific policies and measures that can achieve Nigeria’s NDC commitments.
To be eligible for consideration, project proposals must meet the following requirements:
- Are complete and submitted before the deadline
- Are submitted by a non-governmental organization (NGO), intergovernmental organization (IGO), or other not-for-profit entity
- Requested funding falls within the indicated cost range and the project duration is less than 24 months
- Budget criteria are met and spending caps on expenses are respected
