About the CCCDF CCCDF Goals: • To contribute to Canada's international objectives on climate change; • To promote activities in developing countries that address the causes and effects of climate change; • To contribute to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Budget 2000: Five year, $100-million initiative within Canada’s official development assistance program CIDA administers the CCCDF on behalf of other government departments
Project Selection Funding has been allocated (Completed two selection rounds) 45 Projects + 6 Small Project Funds (Projects ≤ $5M, Small projects ≤ $250K each)
CCCDF Program Areas Each CCCDF project falls under 1 of 4 programming areas: Emissions reduction(41%) – in the rate of growth of greenhouse gases (GHGs) through technology transfer; Carbon sequestration(30%) - in natural sinks such as forests, soils and oceans through sustainable land-use; Adaptation (18%) – to adverse impacts of climate change by reducing vulnerability; Core capacity building(11%) – in climate change mitigation and utilization of carbon credit mechanisms such as CDM.
CCCDF projects in support of national communications 2 specific examples: • Canada-China Cooperation in Climate Change - C5 ($ 3.75 million) • Nigeria-Canada Climate Change Capacity Development Project ($ 1.49 million) There are a number of projects under the CCCDF that could assist developing countries meet their communication commitments under the UNFCCC.
Environmental Technology Advancement Directorate (ETAD) Canada-China Cooperation in Climate Change (C5) Project This project aims to strengthen China’s core capacity within government, research and academic institutions, industry and communities to address the issue of climate change in the areas of CDM, Public Awareness and Outreach, National Communications, and Adaptation and Impacts. Lead By: Canadian Partners • Environment Canada • Resource Futures International Chinese Partners • China Meteorological Administration • Energy Research Institute • Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences • State Environment Protection Agency – Center for Environmental Education and Communications State Development Planning Commission (SDPC) National Climate Change Office Photo source: ??
C5 Project Components Project Start = May 2002 Project Duration = ~22 months Provinces Targeted = All • Develop awareness and outreach tools, techniques and approaches • Share Canadian experience in collecting, estimating and managing GHG data, and forecasting GHG emissions • in support of China’s first National Communications report; • Identify and assess impacts of climate change, in support of an effective adaptationstrategy for China; • Develop an operational model for CDM project development and build capacity in China to employ the model.
2 main activities: Data management, collection and inventory systems Specific source methodologies development fugitive emissions from oil and gas sector emissions of HFCs, PFCs, SF6s emissions from aluminum production C5 - national communications component Expected outcomes: • Develop data management and inventory systems through the demonstration of Canadian experience • Estimate emissions from selected sources • Emissions forecasting by demonstrating Canadian techniques, tools and models.
Canadian Partners Global Change Strategies International (GCSI) Nigerian Partners Nigeria Environmental Study/Action Team (NEST) Nigeria-Canada Climate Change Capacity Development Project The goal of this project is to contribute to strengthening the capacity of Nigeria to participate in global efforts against climate change. The project will emphasize capacity building and training, through national and regional workshops and collaboration with various stakeholders. It will focus on building partnerships, including with local counterparts and experts from appropriate institutions in order to build permanent capacity throughout the country.
