The Preparation of Carbon Footprint Inventory and Climate Change Action Plan for Hatay Metropolitan Municipality Project financed by the European Commission and UNDP with reference number UNDP-TUR-FS-MC2-19-18 aimed to;

  • Develop the greenhouse gas emission inventory for Hatay province

With the project, Hatay Metropolitan Municipality had voluntarily set a mitigation target and sectoral mitigation actions in order for reducing the city’s emissions until 2030. Through the identification of the mitigation actions which are applicable for various sectors and are set with a comprehensive stakeholder participation, a valuable contribution has been made by another local government to Turkey’s climate change mitigation efforts.

  • Population and emission projections taking into account the refugee population in the city
  • Generating mitigation scenarios and emission saving potentials for the targeted sectors
  • Preparation of the climate change action plan for the years 2017-2030
  • Capacity development trainings for the Municipality personnel
  • Developing a web site for the Municipality with the aim of raising awareness and dissemination about climate change
