The overall objective of the project is to strengthen Djibouti’s ability to actively participate in the fight against climate change and to improve climate governance, the integration of climate change in key sectoral policies and implementation of field projects within NAPA priorities.
The specific objectives of this contract are:
1. establishment of an institutional framework for climate change mitigation (the energy sector)
2. adaptation to climate change, particularly through the use for agricultural purposes of treated wastewater.
These objectives are consistent with the aims of the GCCA, and particularly enroll in priority areas of adaptation and increased access to the carbon market. The activities proposed for adaptation are also aligned with intervention and support options identified in the National Adaptation Plan to climate change, particularly those relating to the diversification and adaptation of the rural economy, promoting reforestation of the coast with the participation of village communities, and promotion of agricultural and irrigation techniques to fight against salinity.
Result 1: The Republic of Djibouti has increased capacity and implement pilot activities in energy efficiency and access to funding sources (including the carbon market) for the development of renewable energy. To do this, the following activities are implemented:
1. Institutional support to the Designated National Authority (as defined in the National Communication to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change) and the Djiboutian Agency for Energy Management;
2. Strengthening the capacity of project leaders and executives of the Designated National Authority and the Ministry of Energy Natural Resources in charge of access to clean development mechanisms (or possibly the voluntary carbon market), and more broadly available financing for renewable energy development
Result 2: The adaptive capacity of communities in the surrounding space of the treatment plant Douda is increased through support to agricultural activities subject to water stress, and to have access to treated water and for sustainable use of agro-forestry-pastoral and ecological purposes. To do this, the following activities are implemented:
1. Conduct a feasibility study on the creation of an irrigated area (micro-irrigation) 25 ha fed by treated water from the treatment plant. This study will also show the environmental impact of the use of waste water;
2. Implementation of the irrigated perimeter creating pilot project;
3. Conduct a feasibility study on the valuation of water discharged from the sewage treatment plant and not allocated to agricultural use in the area of nature conservation recently created between Haramous Douda and more specifically for the creation of a wetland planted with reeds along the coastline, as well as the regeneration of natural vegetation. This study will also show the environmental impact of the use of wastewater
