Article 13 of the Paris Agreement established an Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) to provide a clear understanding of climate change actions and on the support provided and received, thus promoting the effective implementation of the Paris Agreement. At the COP24 in Katowice in December 2018, the Parties to the Paris Agreement adopted the “Katowice Climate Package”, which provides, among other things, the Modalities, Procedures and Guidelines (MPGs) for the ETF. After two years of intensive technical dialogue on the content and principles, the MPGs provide operational details on the functioning of the ETF, including the information to be reported and the ETF’s timing and processes.
In this context, the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) and the Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency Global Coordination Platform (CBIT GCP) are organising a series of webinars that will help you reviewing the MPGs for Transparency, in view of the upcoming COP25.
This is the second webinar in this series and will focus on the reporting requirements under the ETF for National Inventories, NDC tracking, climate change impacts and adaptation, and support needed and received. It will include a presentation of approximately 45 minutes followed by Q&A.
