Overview :

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted in 1992 as the basis for a global multilateral response to the threat of anthropogenic climate change. The Convention invites Parties (national states) to become signatories, and to thereby commit themselves to taking actions to limit or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to anthropogenic climate change, as well as to co-operate in adapting to the impacts of climate change, dependent on their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities. The Government of the Republic of South Africa signed the Convention in June 1993 and ratified it in August 1997. As a Party to this Convention, South Africa is obliged to comply with all the requirements of Non-Annex I Parties under the UNFCCC. Amongst the requirements for the Non-Annex I Parties are the reporting requirements to the Conference of Parties (COP) on what the country is doing to implement the Convention. The commitment for Parties to communicate to the COP information relating to the implementation of the Convention is guided by Articles 4 and 12 of the Convention.

The overall objective of the project is to appoint a qualified institution or team of consultants to compile a chapter on Programmes containing Measures to Facilitate adequate Mitigation to Climate Change’ as well as a summary of South Africa’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory (2000–2020) for South Africa’s 4th National Communication Report to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change through-
