Creation of potential for greenhouse gas emissions reduction
Creation of potential for greenhouse gas emissions reduction
Climate change is one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats. To halt climate change, global greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced significantly, and policies to do so must be put in place and fully implemented. The main sources of man-made greenhouse gases are: burning of fossil fuels in electricity generation, transport, industry and households; agriculture and land use changes like deforestation; land filling of waste; use of industrial fluorinated gases. Lugansk region is environmentally challenging and community participation in combating climate change will help community’s meet their basic need for energy services, preparing the ground for the achievement of the MDGs and the UN environment conventions. The Project aims at community capacity building as well as mobilizing local people through CC awareness raising and introducing new local policies in CC focal area. The planned activities are: research on methodology to estimate green house gas emissions in Lugansk region, creation and work of community’s mobile laboratory for independent measurement of emissions and disclosure to local people, building their capacity to reduce emissions, information dissemination and knowledge management through the public ecological newspaper, established in the framework of the Project, wide information campaign targeted at local people and remote areas. The Project is well supported by different stakeholders on the local and regional level. It is important to mention, that neither CBOs, NGOs and even environmental protection department in the region do not have proposed mobile laboratory for making environmental information available to public. Creation of independent mobile laboratory will contribute to local CC policy development, and later practice dissemination in other regions.
