Kenya shares transparency experiences with Mozambique

ICAT workshop facilitates sharing of important lessons on involving stakeholders in climate action

May 28, 2021

In the first of a series of capacity building workshop on climate action transparency, lessons learned from Kenya were shared with institutional stakeholders from Mozambique

The workshop was organised through the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) and focused on stakeholder participation in setting up data transparency systems and regulations.

It was based on experience and results from Kenya, where UNEP DTU Partnership has facilitated the use of the ICAT Stakeholder Participation Guide.

Improving policies and impact

The Stakeholder Participation Guide helps countries enhance stakeholder participation in the design, implementation and assessment of climate policies and actions. Something which has been shown to build understanding and support among diverse groups, improving policy and action design and strengthen emissions reductions, sustainable development, and transformational change impacts.

In the coming months, UNEP DTU Partnership will also organise capacity building in Mozambique on greenhouse gas inventories, the use of the Greenhouse Gas Abatement Cost Model (GACMO), information to report on NDC implementation and achievement and support needed and received.
