- To develop the BUR-5 in conformity with the guidelines of BURs, as well as requirements as explained in the training material of the Technical Team of Experts;
- To update information on South Africa’s GHG inventory, mitigation efforts as well as financial, technical and capacity needs so as to communicate related information to the domestic and international community; and
- To ensure that BUR-5 reflects the appropriate update and progress from previous BURs (BUR1-BUR4) and that the recommendations of the ICA from the previous BURs are taken into consideration in BUR-5.
