Thailand is one of the countries vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It has therefore articulated ambitious national targets to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and increase resilience. In the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), Thailand committed to reducing 20-25% of emissions from the energy, transport, waste and industry sectors by 2030 below business as usual. In the field of adaptation, water management, agriculture, health, natural resource management, tourism and human settlements have been defined as priority areas.
To improve national framework conditions for the NDC implementation. To this end, the transition towards a low-carbon and climate-resilient development is being fostered.
The TGCP supports Thailand through a cross-sectoral approach in selected sectors: climate policy, agriculture, energy, wasteand wastewater management and water including the climate finance of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to drive the climate actions in Thailand. Capitalizing on GIZ’s close and long-standing cooperation with Thai partners, the team works closely with key partner ministries which receive tailor-made support in relation to the NDCs.
For the overall programme coordination, the Policy component ensures alignment between the different sectors, thus providing coherent and systematic cross-sectoral support on the topic of the Thai NDC operationalization.
Moreover, synergies between the sectors are utilized and coherence is guaranteed through joint activities between the sectors.
TGCP supports and engages key ministries and agencies in providing support in 5 key fields of work:
National climate-relevant policy development and integration into several sectors
Measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) and monitoring & evaluation (M&E)
