KZN GHG Mitigation Opportunities

In this project, SEA aimed to build technical capacity within the provincial governments of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Gauteng on greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and climate finance application processes.

KZN and Gauteng received this support through their membership of the Climate Group Under2 Coalition. Both provincial government entities received capacity-building on monitoring, reporting and verification of greenhouse gas emissions relating to tracking climate action.

KZN received support on compiling a greenhouse gas inventory for the province in line with IPCC protocols, with a particular focus on key emissions sectors and sectors that are difficult to report. Support to Gauteng included assessment of climate finance applications and how to improve such applications in future.
