The Energy Community Secretariat participated today in a digital workshop focused on presenting the findings and recommendations of an EU climate acquis roadmap it helped to design together with UNDP under an EU4Climate project for Georgia. The roadmap assesses Georgia’s existing climate related policy and legal basis, pinpoints the main challenges and gaps and proposes the way forward.
The strategic roadmap focuses on four main priority areas:
- Acceleration of the preparation of National Energy and Climate Plans
- Transposition of the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation into national legislation and development of a national monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system for greenhouse gases
- Adoption of relevant F-gas regulation
- Adjustment of national legislation on ozone depleting substances
EU4Climate is an EU-funded programme focusing on the development and implementation of low emission and climate resilient policies in Eastern Partner countries. In 2019 - 2020, UNDP Georgia partnered with the Energy Community Secretariat to support the Government of Georgia in harmonizing climate policy and approximating climate legislation to the EU climate acquis. The Secretariat is active in similar projects also in Moldova and Ukraine.
