KfW PoA Support Centre provides support to the waste sector in Mozambique.
9 January 2015
Carbon Africa in collaboration with the Mozambican Recycling Association (AMOR) and relevant government partners (MICOA, FUNAB, etc.) identified mitigation actions in the waste sector in Mozambique. Through recent funding from the KfW PoA Support Centre, a more detailed assessment of MRV needs, CDM and climate finance feasibility and capacity-building activities for relevant stakeholders will be undertaken. Some of the potential mitigation actions include the implementation of sanitary landfills with methane capture and the establishment of Waste Transfer and Recycling Centres.
Completion of Ethiopia Railway Corporation climate finance support programme
5 January 2015
We are pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of the Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC) climate finance support programme under the UK, Norway and Denmark-funded Strategic Climate Institutions Programme (SCIP). Ethiopia is building up to 5,000 km of railways by 2020. Carbon Africa Ltd and Climate Focus B.V. assisted ERC and its Government partners in the development and implementation of a climate finance strategy. The railway corporation plans to tap into carbon market revenues through Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) registration and seeks concessional finance for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) development. Capacity building to strengthen ERC's institutional capacity and enhance climate finance readiness was also a focus of the first project phase. At the 20th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC COP 20), ERC launched a web presence set up to highlight the project and the major milestones achieved.
