The objective of the project is to catalyze investments in low carbon green urban development based on an integrated urban planning approach, by encouraging innovation, participatory planning, and partnerships between a variety of public and private sector entities.
The strategy of the project is to create, launch and support a new institutional mechanism called “Green City Lab” (GCL) as a vehicle for encouraging and supporting new innovative measures and approaches in addressing the urban development challenges and barriers.
Moldova Sustainable Green Cities Project (MSGCP) is targeting the residential sector, part of a broader integrated urban planning approach (IUPA) at a neighborhood level. It seeks to strengthen the role of the Home Owner Associations (HOAs) to manage their buildings and common property and to contribute to the development of their surroundings, while also supporting them to get their legal status as credit-worthy legal entities with the option to access affordable financing for the required energy efficiency (EE) investments.
The Environmental Impact Assessment Expert (EIAE) will provide support to the Moldova Sustainable Green Cities Project team to ensure that environmental issues are taken into consideration for the following two demo projects:
- Energy efficiency measures in a multi-apartment residential building in Chisinau municipality;
- Multiapartment residential building. The building is connected to a centralized heating system. There is no functional centralized hot water system. Energy Efficiency measures will mainly be focused on the insulation of roof and walls, replacement of windows, installation of Individual Heating Point, installation of smart meters.
- Neighbourhood Renewal Green Urban Project.
- Installation of Photovoltaic systems (up to 20 kW installed) and/or solar collectors for hot water preparation in 3 Multi apartment residential buildings.
