  • Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) Phase-out Management Plan

    Moldova is party to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer (Vienna, March 22, 1985) and Montreal Protocol (Montreal, September 16, 1987). As of 1996 and since 2007, the country has committed to gradual phase-out of ozone depleting substances (ODS) such as hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) mostly because of their high Global Warming Potential (GWP) and the significant climate benefits this would generate.

  • Disaster and Climate Risk Reduction in Moldova

    Moldova’s economy, population, and environment are highly exposed and vulnerable to natural hazards. Climate change is expected to amplify the exposure to climate and disaster risks and to hydro-meteorological hazards. The Disaster and Climate Risk Reduction project aims to help reduce disaster and climate risks in Moldova through development of national and local risk management capacities.

  • Climate Change Adaptation Planning Process in Moldova

    The project aims to ensure that Moldova has the system and capacities in place for medium to long term adaptation planning and budgeting contributing to reduced vulnerability of the population and key sectors to the impacts of climate change.

Environmental degradation, pollution and unsustainable use of natural resources are a significant concern for Moldova’s development agenda. The economic, social and health costs of environmental degradation and deteriorated infrastructure are high, while economic growth will further increase pressure on the environment and natural resources.
