GHG Accounting and Capacity Building for the Cities of Jaipur, Bhopal, Mysore, Vijayawada and Guntur in India
IIEC is the lead agency carrying out a GHG accounting and capacity building project for five cities in India. Funded by the Global Environment Facility, the project is being implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), in cooperation with India’s Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD). The project supports the cities’ broader goals under the ongoing Sustainable Cities program.
IIEC’s efforts to build capacity for GHG emissions accounting and preparation of GHG inventories in the selected cities is an initial step to enable the cities to map, track and monitor their GHG emissions in order to prepare low-carbon action plans. IIEC is working closely with the five city administrations to create a database for the GHG accounting exercise while building the capacity of the cities to carry out these activities on an ongoing basis.
