UNDP-Lebanon: Lebanon’s Second National Communication to the UNFCCC

The development of Lebanon’s Second National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has been a joint undertaking of the Ministry of Environment and the UNDP Lebanon in the frame of the support to capacity building in the field of climate change provided by the Global Environment Facility under the “Enabling Activities for the Preparation of Lebanon’s Second National Communication to the UNFCCC” project. It presents basic facts about Lebanese society and reviews the various economic sectors according to the classification commonly used in the context of climate. Emissions of different greenhouse gases (GHGs) are presented for each sector for the year 2000 and as an aggregate figure for each year from 1994 to 2004. The SNC describes Lebanon’s vulnerability and what needs to be done to adapt to climate change. The material on which the national communication is based has been obtained through extensive work undertaken by government agencies, academic institutions, the private sector and non-governmental organizations, led by the Ministry of Environment. The Cyprus Institute contributed to the Climate Risks part by providing in-house regional climate model projections and analysis.
