Namibia: Peugeot Will Export 'Once Issues Are Resolved'

The Environmental Protection Agency of Liberia (EPA) on Wednesday, December 11, 2020 concluded a three-day National GreenHouse Gases Inventories (GHGI) Training Rehearsal for relevant stakeholders from government and the private sector.

The three-day event held under the auspices of the Liberia Forest Sector Project (LFSP) was intended to assess the gaps in existing inventory preparation mechanism. It also sought to evaluate experts and institutions on the GHGI process and data collection.

Held under the theme: ‘Building Capacities to Prepare National GHG Inventories in Liberia,’ the workshop was also intended to further undertake a hand on training on GHG inventory preparation using Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 2006 guidelines and IPCC good practice guidance’s 2000 and 2003.

Elijah Z. Whapoe, focal point of the Liberia Forest Sector Project (LFSP) lauded the GHG experts for honouring invitation to attend the rehearsal training which according to him was necessary to build their capacities.

He is grateful that the Global Environment Facility (GEF) funded Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) Project implemented by Conservation International (CI) is also building the capacities of GHG’s experts in Liberia.

Mr. Whapoe stressed the need for further collaboration between the CBIT Project and LFSP for the incessant building of technicians’ capacities and skills. He disclosed that the building of local GHG technicians’ skills will not only motivate them, but increased their appetite to go international.
