Increasing the Efficiency of the Hydrocarbon Sector by Using Waste Gas

Project Summary

The main global environment objective of this project is to develop and demonstrate at a pilot stage the capacity of the Syrian Arab Republic to meet GHG reduction commitments. That is, a global environmental issue will be integrated with local decision-making processes and policy development and implementation. Although any reduction in emissions due to the project’s direct efficiency gains may be small, the potential benefits of integrated, informed policy and regulatory development are very great.
