Climate change

Tajikistan joined the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1998 as a non-Annex I Party and ratified the Kyoto Protocol in 2008 (Parliamentary Resolution No. 1142). The 2009 Governmental Resolution No. 393 established the Designated National Authority (DNA) for the implementation of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol. The Resolution established the Ministry of Industry and Energy (MoIE) as the DNA and an interdepartmental council for coordinating CDM implementation. The Department of Energy within the MoIE deals with DNA responsibilities. The 2009 Governmental Resolution No. 654 approved the procedure for selecting and approving projects under the CDM. The Resolution clarified the project proposal cycle, from submission of the idea, through analysis and approval, up to the UNFCCC Executive Board submission, including monitoring implementation of investment plans.
