Third National Communications (TNC) to the UNFCCC and Biennial Update Reporting (BUR) for Malaysia
What is the project about?
Malaysia ratified the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) on July 13, 1994 and the Kyoto Protocol on 4 September 2002. As part of the obligations assumed as a party of the UNFCCC, the Government of Malaysia submitted its First National Communication in 2000 and the Second National Communication (NC2) was submitted in January of 2011.
As an immediate background, the NC2 has produced several results of significant importance for the development of this project, the Third National Communication (TNC) and the first Biennial Update Report (BUR).
What do we hope to accomplish?
The goals and objectives of this enabling project are the following:
- Assist Malaysia in meeting reporting requirements under Article 12 of the Convention
- Strengthen the technical and institutional capacities of Malaysian institutions to implement the Convention
- Submission of the first Biennial Update Report (BUR)
The TNC/BUR project would take this process a step further and would represent a strategic tool to integrate climate change considerations into sector policies and programs, as well as building on and linking to the already ongoing initiatives. It is also a tool for decision makers at all levels by providing them with an in depth mitigation and adaptation assessments which will ensure a more accurate and robust policy planning process.
