Le Projet d’atténuation du changement climatique dans l’agriculture (MICCA)

Côte d'Ivoire

2017: In October, MICCA organized a workshop on institutional arrangements for data sharing of agriculture, forestry and land use statistics. This workshop brought together 30 experts and directors from different institutions including the statistical agency, geographic institute, and forestry and agriculture ministries. The participants came up with recommendations to improve existing data sharing mechanisms and to build on the current institutional arrangements to improve the MRV system for GHGI reporting. It was concluded that a robust data collection process is crucial in Côte d’Ivoire. A roadmap will be prepared with provisional long term (2018-2020) action to insure sustainable data collection to improve GHG estimates for the biennial update report and consistency with the forest reference emission level. During the same week, FAO supported the inventory team with a quality assurance of GHG estimates that are to be submitted as part of the biennial update report in 2018.

2017: In April, MICCA hosted a delegation of the AFOLU inventory team of Côte d’Ivoire for a targeted technical support aimed at strengthening the institutional framework, improving capacities for the inventory and the national Monitoring Reporting and Verification system (MRV), in view of the production of the next national communication. A workplan was drafted for the next phase, that includes the organization of a national workshop on the AFOLU component of the inventory with the objective to gather all the relevant departments and sensibilize them on the importance to share their data and statistics with the inventory team. Other planned activities comprise a quality assurance/quality control of the inventory data and a trasnition to the IPCC 2006 guidelines.
