DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED IN PREPARATION THE
NATIONAL COMMUNICATION AND LESSONS LEARNT
IN OVERCOMING THESE DIFFICULTIES
Introduction
• Burundi has started her Second National
Communication on climate change in October
2006 and finished it in November2009.
• At the COP 16, the Burundi’ s Second National
Communication has been presented in a Side
Event on the 4th December 2011.
• In few days, Burundi will start the Third National
communication on climate change because funds
are already available.
I. DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED IN
PREPARATION THE NATIONAL
COMMUNICATION
• On Greenhouse gas Inventories
- Data of 2000 year were not available, especially for
Forest sector( worse archiving),
- Some Experts who have elaborated the first national
communication on climate change have moved to
other jobs ( Lack of technical expertise),
- The Inventory has been elaborated in different
sectors but Experts have taken a long time to finalize
it because they were not available
I.DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED IN
PREPARATION THE NATIONAL
COMMUNICATION
• Mitigation Analysis
The main problem we have on this section is the use of
Models including the model LEAP in energy sector
• Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessment,
- The data on climate, including the climatic Projections
are basic and used by other sectors.
- Many climatic stations have been destroyed during the
war,
- The lack of explicit guidelines,
I. DIFFICULTIES ENCOUNTERED IN
PREPARATION THE NATIONAL
COMMUNICATION
• In General, experts tend to copy and paste the
First National Communication,
II. LESSONS LEARNT IN OVERCOMING
THESE DIFFICULTIES
• On Greenhouse gas Inventories
- We decided to take 2005 as the reference year in
our SNC,
- We have organized a national workshop and an
expert of the First National Communication has
trained new experts,
- In the third national communication on climate
change, experts will confirm their availability
II.LESSONS LEARNT IN OVERCOMING
THESE DIFFICULTIES
• Mitigation Analysis
There is need of guidelines on the models to be
used in that section in the 6 UN languages.
countries could improve their mitigation
projections.
With Leap, experts have been reinforced in
capacity by a Burundian senior expert, but
they steel need to be trained again.
II. LESSONS LEARNT IN OVERCOMING
THESE DIFFICULTIES
Vulnerability and Adaptation Assessment,
- Many stations have been improved and many
projects have included in their activities the
capacity building of The Burundi Geographic
Institute to improve climatic data.
- The National Communications support
Programme could support developing countries
and supply explicit guidelines on that section,
II. LESSONS LEARNT IN OVERCOMING
THESE DIFFICULTIES
• In General, experts tend to copy and paste the
First National Communication,
The coordinator, when elaborating TORs must be
clear to avoid that.
Conclusion
As it has been done in Pretoria in 2006 for the
Second National Communication on climate
change, the National coordinators need to be
trained before starting the Third National
Communication on climate change.
The End.
Thank you for your Attention!
