Conducted for Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) funded by United Nations Industrial Development Organization.
In 2015, Iraq submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), with a target of reducing its national GHG emissions by 14% by 2035. Iraq is characterised by rising temperatures (contributing to a deterioration of the energy sector), declining precipitation and reduction in water and food availability – adversely hampering the agricultural sector.
This project sought to provide the required technical assistance to support the development of a comprehensive Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) and action plan for addressing climate change mitigation and adaptation in Iraq’s most vulnerable economic sectors. This supports the country’s achievement of its climate targets using the most appropriate technologies.
As part of a project team (with Carbon Limits, Iraqi Green Climate Organization and Newcastle University), OneWorld’s role included leading the sector analysis on agriculture (adaptation),and providing support for the energy and industry (mitigation) analyses, and the water sector (adaptation) analysis. OneWorld also gave input into gender mainstreaming aspects of the analysis.
