Technology Needs Assessment Report: Identifying and prioritising mitigation technologies as part of Guyana's technology needs assessment (TNA) project
Guyana Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) project has mitigation and an adaptation component and this TNA report Technology Needs Assessment Report: Identifying and prioritizing mitigation technologies as part of Guyana's technology needs assessment (TNA) project for mitigation is one of the first main deliverables of the TNA project. The priority sectors for mitigation have been identified through the meetings of the various committees and Sectoral Working Groups (SWGs) as well as direct engagements by the consultant and a wide range of stakeholders.
The prioritization of sectors for the mitigation component of the TNA commenced through a review of existing national policies and planning documents, in particular, Guyana's National Development Strategy (NDS) (2001-2010), Second National Communication to the UNFCCC (SNC) (2012) and Guyana's Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) (2015) to identify the priority sectors where the mitigation potential is most significant. Of the sectors identified, the energy and forests sectors were found to have significant opportunities for greenhouse gas abatement and were identified by the NTC as priorities for the mitigation component of the TNA. The report has shortlisted the technologies and their respective applications which was approved by the NTC for the energy and forest sectors.
