The vision of Georgian the civil society on “Georgia’s draft Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)”

The vision of the Greens Movement of Georgia and the civil society (signatories of this vision) on “Georgia’s draft Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC)”.

General Attitudes Towards Georgia’s (NDC) – (Published by the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture of Georgia, June 2020):

 

  • We believe that the document is overloaded with texts that do not contain the relevant content of the government’s position and vision on climate change and greenhouse gas reductions and do not add anything to it.
  • The published materials do not contain additional information that would be useful for the clarity, transparency and clear understanding of the nationally defined contribution.
  • We find that Chapters 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5 of Chapter 2 of the Document (National Circumstances and Institutional Arrangement) poorly reflect national policies, strategies and targets by relevant sectors, which complicates some of the objectives set to reduce GHG emissions. In perception, it makes them unbelievable. The same reasons call into question the reality and ambition of some goals.
  • It is known that in connection with climate change, Georgia has a number of obligations under international acts, as well as the country’s legislation. Some of these deadlines are still unfulfilled. Against this background, Chapter 3 of the document – “Creation of a National Greenhouse Gas Inventory System of Georgia” looks extremely modest.
  • According to the current record, the fate of the 2010 Copenhagen Debt remains unclear (commitment – “Georgia will take steps to achieve a measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) deviation from the baseline scenario, which will be supported and financed by technology and capacity building).
  • According to the current record, the fate of the 2010 Copenhagen Debt remains unclear (commitment – “Georgia will take steps to achieve a measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) deviation from the baseline scenario, which will be supported and financed by technology and capacity building).
  • To the extent that the Climate Action Plan should be based on the objectives set out in this document, we will inevitably consider more specifics in Articles 52, 54 and 56;
  • We find that Chapter 5 (Adaptation) looks weaker than optimal, planning only studies and evaluations for the next 10 years and does not involve activity in implementing a specific adaptation measure based on the results of the research.
  • Some of the signatories to this document believe that a document of such a high status as a “nationally defined contribution” of the country should include measures to reduce emissions from the occupied territories.
  • Based on our experience, we have a firm belief that tackling climate change challenges is impossible without the active support of the community and the population as a whole.
  • In the absence of such support, it will be impossible to achieve the desired results, even if mobilizing 2 times and 3 times more resources than necessary for the implementation of any government decision.
  • Therefore, we consider the significant shortcoming of the document to be that it does not focus on the issues of raising public awareness, significantly improving the level of education and mobilizing the community to achieve a common goal.

Based on our experience, we believe that the document should be provided to the public in such a way that each citizen clearly sees the common goal and the need to engage in government efforts to achieve it, their own role and place.
