Since 2016 the Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) project has been instrumental to supporting and sustaining the Cabinet’s working structure, including sector-based and cross-cutting roundtables (on energy efficiency, agriculture, industry, transport, finance and infrastructure) and strengthening capacities at the subnational level in all 24 provinces into which Argentina’s territory is divided.

Prior to 2016, the government prioritized mitigation efforts mainly in the petrochemical and fertilizers sectors, because of the significant incidence of agricultural activities on total emissions and an agreement to move forward on these issues by private companies. LECB Argentina’s capacity building efforts included the
development of an emissions inventory system, identification of mitigation measures and designing a draft monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system for these two sectors.
