Support for Sustainable Prizren – Initiating Urban NAMAs (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions) - ADC Co-financing
The objective of the project is to prepare the city of Prizren for reducing the overall Green House Gases (GHG) emissions through cross-sectoral interventions at the municipal level, such as collaboration between industry, government, private sector, civil society and academia. This project will contribute to creating healthy urban living conditions and achieving sustainable growth, while setting an example as a city-wide intervention for Kosovo. By that the intended impact of the project is to contribute to reducing climate-change related vulnerability in Kosovo
The municipality of Prizren enhance its technical capacities in terms of reporting, measuring and verifying GHGs Emission.
The municipality of Prizren is able to articulate their climate-related priorities, and to identify and implement mitigation actions as urban Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions across sectors
Up to 40% of the urban population will be affected positively by the project. Equal inclusion of man, women and marginalised groups will be ensured through consultation in the focus groups to determine the exact type and the location of the interventions.
Establish the Prizren Green Growth Centre, which will be directly reporting to the Mayor office in the City.
Create a baseline inventory and the framework for measuring, reporting and verifying GHGs emissions.
Develop Cross-Sectoral Intervention Plan with a gender responsive approach.
The Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions are critical vehicles to implement climate change mitigation actions and are in line with the National Strategy for Climate Change. The risks of climate change can have much greater impact due to its high degree of socio-economic vulnerability in Kosovo. While climate change impacts Kosovo as a whole, it is also proven to disproportionately disadvantage the poor due to their decreased capacity to alter habits or flee unsafe or unhealthy areas.
