The Climate Change Team at the Lebanese Ministry of Environment, with the support of the Global Environment Facility and the United Nations Development Programme, has produced Lebanon’s First Biennial Update Report (BUR) which was submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in October 2015.

Lebanon is the 15th country to have submitted its BUR. It identifies the energy sector as the main contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (74% – including transport), followed by the waste sector (11%) and industrial processes (10%), while the forestry sector acts as an emissions sink.
