  • 4. 4  Incremental Costs  Gobal Environmental Benefits (tonnes of co2e reduced) GEF : Key Concept UNDP is a key partner of the Global Environment Facility … UNDP is one of 3 original implementing agencies along with World Bank & UNEP UNDP has implemented $10 billion of environmental projects over the past 20 years and Mobilized $1.5 billion during the last GEF 5 cycle
  • 5. 5 UNDP has a portfolio of around $120 million USD of GEF climate change projects in this region Focus on Buildings Energy-Efficiency • Building stock 30% less efficient than EU 25 • Utilities account for 20% in poor households income • 30% reduction in costs can make a substantial difference 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 $20.6M $12.7M Energy-Efficiency (24 Projects) $120 million USD (38 projects) Renewable Energy (8 projects) Transport (6 projects)

  • 17. 17 No decision has yet been taken about carbon offsetting beyond appointing the official offsetting partner … GEF/Minprirody/UNDP Project: Greening 2014 Sochi Olympics: A Strategy and Action Plan for the Options 1, 2, 3 : SOC ‘owned’ emissions = 218,000 tCO2e Option 4: SOC + all SC Olympstroy ‘owned’ construction = 628,000 tCO2e Option 7: All except Spectators = 3,681,000 tCO2e Option 8: The entire footprint = 5,103,000 tCO2e
  • 18. 18 Key Lessons Learned - Planning Needs to Start Early for Projects to be Successful, especially since GEF does not fund large scale investment - SustainableTransport Projects are Highly Capital Intensive so there is a strong need to prioritize among different priorities and to consider carefully financing aspects - Technology adoption resulting from the demonstration activities can be a key outcome of sucessful projects - Co-financing is critical. As of the end of 2012 the GeF has allocated more than $38 million and leveraged more than $556 million to support sustainable transport related activities at international sport events ; a leveraging of almost 15-1.
