Thailand’s Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) project is linked to the Country Programme Outcome on ‘Effective Response to Climate Change,’ and aims to address climate change and environmental security issues through the enhancement of national capacity and policy readiness, particularly Output 1: Low emission and climate resilient society initiatives; and public private investments are translated into relevant policy planning and implementation by the Thai Government with private sector engagement.
The goal of this project is to build capacities for the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in selected industrial sectors and systemize the GHG inventory in the sectors of Transport and Waste.
In this context, the project aims to achieve 4 outcomes including (1) Strengthened Institutional and procedural system for National GHG Inventory system for the transport and waste sectors. (2) A portfolio of NAMA proposals and their built-in MRV systems developed for selected industrial sectors. (3) Multi-source Finance and Technology Transfer Frameworks formulated to support implementation of NAMAs and (4) Knowledge platform to ensure flows of know-how among key stakeholders of NAMAs in selected industrial sectors.
The LECB project has been designed to be an integral part of the existing projects and initiatives under the collaboration between the Royal Thai Government (RTG) and UNDP’s Inclusive Green Growth and Sustainable Development (IGSD) team. It will be implemented in tandem and in close connection with the project on the preparation of the Third National Communication and the Biennial Update Report and the climate finance initiatives.
An additional output to tracking of private climate finance flows have been incorporated as an Enhanced Support to LECB in 2015. This Enhanced Support is labelled as Private Climate Expenditure and Institutional Review (PCEIR). PCEIR’s 4 outputs are (1) Institutions and mechanisms supporting mobilization and monitoring of private sector investment in climate change mapped and engaged. (2) Credible and country owned methodologies for identifying and categorizing private sector investment developed and implemented. (3) Lessons identified with regards to the role of the private sector in helping deliver national climate objectives and how the public sector might best deploy funds or create the enabling environment to support this and (4) Approaches for longer term private finance tracking systems developed, and implementation pathways explored.
This project is implemented by the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) and responsible by Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (Public Organization) (TGO).
