UNDP Supports Institutions to Combat Climate Change in Kosovo
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in close collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning (MESP), and with generous contribution of the Czech government, initiated the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for Kosovo. The inventory was officially handed over to MESP and its Agency for Environment Protection in Kosovo (KEPA) on 22 June 2012.
In the presence of Deputy Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning, Shpetim Rudi, Czech Republic Ambassador to Kosovo, Jiri Dolezel, Chief Executive of the Kosovo Environment protection Agency, Ilir Morina, UN Development Coordiantor and UNDP Resident Representative, Osnat Lubrani, high MESP officials and representatives of other relevant institutions, experts from Charles University in Prague presented initial Inventory of the Grennhouse Gas in Kosovo.
The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory is a mechanism to record and monitor the emissions of greenhouse gases and it was developed with UNDP and MESP support by a team of experts from the Charles University in Prague, with the financial support of the Czech government. Although Kosovo has not signed the Kyoto Protocol, it is committed to fulfill the obligations derived from this international agreement on Climate Change and GHG Inventory is one of them.
In the future, the inventory will be managed by MESP's KEPA and will be used for reporting to internal and external bodies, for policy development, policy debates and policy monitoring. In the context of increasingly challenging international agreements for emission reductions and green development measures, the introduction of the GHG inventory in Kosovo is very timely and it will support Kosovo's green development objectives and its contribution to the international climate change agenda.
