The Royal Thai Government (RTG)'s Climate Change Master Plan, developed for the period of 2014-2050, is one of the government's key initiatives and aims to lead the country to a Low Carbon Society by 2050 by reducing GHG emissions within a sustainable growth framework. GGGI is supporting the RTG to achieve this goal through technical assistance in the development of industrial sector GHG reduction strategies for GHG that complement the Climate Change Master Plan. GGGI’s support under the project includes:
Developing GHG reduction roadmaps for the country’s industrial sectors with special focus on the automotive parts, palm oil and frozen food sub-sectors
Identifying potential GHG reduction measures and technologies, and conducting technological and economic analysis
Enhancing capacity and coordination within RTG and the private in order to conduct GHG inventories, emission projections, and economic impact assessments of mitigation measures on the selected sub-sectors
The project's goal is to assist the implementation of the Climate Change Master Plan through the development of a GHG reduction roadmap in three industrial sub-sectors of the Thai economy. The project directly coordinates with the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The project is supported by Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
