Nepal-Climate and Carbon Unit
(Redirected from SNV-Climate and Carbon Unit)
"In order to connect to this potential, SNV (Netherlands Development Organisation), the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID/UKAID) and Government of Nepal have launched a Climate and Carbon Unit (CCU) within the Nepal Ministry of Environment’s Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC). The CCU establishes climate change and carbon finance expertise at both policy and operational levels and, critically, links low-emissions practices with climate-sensitive strategies. One of the vital points of this programme is the creation of decentralised, district-level measures (District Climate and Energy Plans/DCEPs) that promote increased efficiency and capacity in renewable energy dissemination and create linkages with climate resilience and low-carbon growth that builds on SNV’s core strengths of developing localised RE solutions."
