Résumé du projet
The purpose of the project is to enable the Government of South Africa to prioritise cost effective and beneficial climate-change mitigation policy measures and interventions that contribute to and support the country’s positive deviation from the Green House Gas emission ’’business as usual trajectory”

Présentation du projet
The Strategic Climate Policy Fund (SCPF) Programme is aimed at supporting the Government of South Africa’s response to climate change, through the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA), to implement its climate change mitigation policy as described in the National Climate Change Response Policy (NCCRP). The UK Government has committed to provide up to £2.1million to support policy development around South Africa’s transition to a low carbon economy. It should do this by identifying mitigation actions and developing the evidence base around socio-economic impacts and opportunities of that transition and gain buy-in from the various stakeholders in the country.

SCPF’s delivers this by supporting procurement of studies relating to climate change mitigation that can contribute to the process of identifying and analysing mitigation options and providing an evidence base that is relevant to implementation of the NCCRP. The SCPF programme focuses on key economic sectors that include Energy, Transport, Industry, Waste and Agriculture, Forestry and other Land-Use (AFOLU). The programme was originally designed to support the technical working group on mitigation (a body of stakeholders from across government and non-government sectors) which was intended to guide and oversee any research. However, by the time the contract was in place to deliver the programme this working group had been disbanded, as DEA considered that it had served its purpose.

The expected impact of the programme is : South Africa makes a fair contribution to the global effort to stabilise greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations within a timeframe that enables economic, social and environmental development to proceed in a sustainable manner. The expected outcome of the programme is : Government of South Africa able to prioritise cost effective and beneficial mitigation policies, measures and interventions that contribute to and support the country’s deviation from the GHG emission “business as usual” trajectory
