Changing climate change

Moldova is highly vulnerable to climate change and disasters, with average annual economic loss of 2.13% GDP. The country’s unique biodiversity is currently threatened by climate change, habitat fragmentation and over-exploitation. Enforcement of the environmental legislation is lagging behind, leading to environmental degradation, pollution and unsustainable use of natural resources. Moldova is still highly dependent on external energy sources, which account for 86.2% of total energy consumption.

Renewables. Green development. Preparedness

UNDP is assisting the Government of Moldova in its transition towards low-emission and climate-resilient development, by building up institutional, legal and individual capacities to respond to climate change and natural and man-made disasters, by exploring the potential of renewable energy and energy and resource efficiency in production and consumption, while supporting reform and modernization of the environmental management systems.
