Project Details


The project is designed to provide support for building institutional and technical capacities to meet enhanced transparency requirements as defined in the Article 13 of the Paris Agreement of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. It uses a capacity strengthening approach to shift from ad hoc reporting to a continuous process of monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) that will capture transparency activities and allow the country to track its progress against its commitments under its NDC. The first project component will establish national institutional arrangements for an enhanced transparency framework, the second project component will introduce MRV systems that will support the enhanced transparency framework, and the third project component will provide capacity building for stakeholders that will be necessary to support transparency-related activities over time.
