Under article 12 of the UNFCCC all parties (countries ratified the convention) are required to prepare and submit national communication including national greenhouse gas inventory. Development of SNC will enable parties to fulfill the commitments under the UNFCCC by enabling it to prepare its Second National Communication (SNC) in accordance with the Guidelines for the Preparation of National Communications from non-Annex I Parties (17/CP.8) adopted by the Conference of Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC, and to strengthen the National Communication process.
Development of SNC including national inventory of anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks of all greenhouse gases not controlled by the Montreal Protocol, to the extent its capacities permit, using comparable methodologies to be promoted and agreed upon by the Conference of the Parties As a key component of the SNC project the preparation of a national inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions fulfills international obligations, as well as presents an important opportunity to contribute to broader sustainable development objectives in Nauru. This would include identifying potential energy savings and providing useful information to improve management in the waste, agriculture and industry sector, amongst others.
The other major components of SNC to the UNFCCC includes the integration of information contained in INC and national adaptation programmes; sustainable development and the integration of climate change concerns into medium- and long- term planning; Measures contributing to addressing climate change; Research and systematic observation on Climate change impacts, adaptation measures and response strategies and Education, training and public awareness towards climate change.
