Sub-Regional Workshop on Integrated Planning for Climate and Air

📅 11 – 13 June 2024
Astana, Kazakhstan

The UNEP-convened Climate and Clean Air Coalition and the UNECE secretariat to the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (Air Convention) are organizing a 3-day Sub-regional Workshop on Integrated Planning for Climate and Air from 11-13 June 2024 in Astana, Kazakhstan.

The primary purpose of this workshop is to encourage cross-sectoral conversation and generate concrete initiatives that cut across conventional barriers, allowing stakeholders to achieve significant progress toward sustainable development goals and international agreements commitments, including the UNECE Air Convention and the Paris Agreement. Participants will engage in interactive conversations, exchange best practices, and gain practical knowledge of integrated planning methodologies and approaches.

The workshop will be organized into two sections:

  1. The Methane Roadmap Action Workshop (11-12 June): Participants will share updates and best practices, learn about the CCAC M-RAP methodology and SLCP NDC guidelines and opportunities, and explore the support available to countries from CCAC.
  2. Aligning air pollutant and GHG emission inventories development (12-13 June): The significance and challenges of emission inventories will be explored during the sessions, with real-world examples and discussions on the reporting obligations under the UNFCCC and the Air Convention providing more context.

By bringing together various stakeholders from across the region, this workshop will serve as an opportunity to promote knowledge-sharing and capacity-building, setting the stage for informed decision-making and impactful climate and clean air action on the path to COP29.
