Developing a strategic menu on mitigation options
The Paris Agreement has catalysed critical momentum for climate
action on the side of country governments, non-state actors and
donors alike. This has resulted in an increased set of activities,
making a coherent approach more important than ever. This case
study illustrates the development of a “strategic menu for mitigation
options” by the Government of Egypt which facilitates
the matching of identified priority actions with funding
op por tunities.
Ten key topics were identified, for which Information Notes for
Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NINOs) have been
developed, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport,
lighting, buildings, industry, waste, oil, gas and fertilizers.
These actions have a high mitigation potential and are expected to
signifi cantly contribute to an implementation plan for Egypt’s
Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
