The project aims to enable Lebanon to prepare, produce and disseminate its Third Biennial Update Report (BUR) and Fourth National Communication to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in order to fulfill Lebanon’s commitments as a Non-Annex 1 Party to the Convention. The reports present the country’s GHG inventory, implemented sectoral mitigation actions that are contributing in reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change, in addition to the main barriers for fulfilling Lebanon’s reporting requirements.
In 2019, Lebanon’s 3BUR was submitted to UNFCCC, reporting the national Greenhouse gas emissions from the period 1994-2015. The inventory was prepared using for the first time the 2006 IPCC guidelines, which included changes in some emission factors and parameters. The 3BUR also updated the wastewater mitigation actions implemented in Lebanon, the support received and needed as well as the main gaps and constraints for capacity building needs. Lebanon is currently preparing its Fourth National Communication (4NC) to be submitted in October 2021.
The purpose of this consultancy is to 1) review and update the GHG inventory for the wastewater sector for the years 2016-2019 taking into consideration the methodological changes of the IPCC guidelines and the new activity data available; 2) update the list of mitigation actions and plans for the wastewater sector for the period 2016-2019 and 3) develop/update emission reduction scenarios for 2030 and 2050, in line with Lebanon’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
