COP27 Side-Event: Support opportunities available to developing country Parties for MRV arrangements
to UTC
Location: Online

Background Communicating reliable, transparent and comprehensive information on GHG emissions, climate actions and support allows to understand ambition and progress achieved by Parties and informs the deliberations and guidance on these matters. Financial and technical assistance are important for developing countries in preparation of their national reports under the Convention and the Paris Agreement. In that context, some key actors will provide an overview of available support opportunities in enhancing the technical capacity of developing countries on provisions of the MRV and ETF arrangements, as well as in financing the preparation of NCs, BURs and soon to come BTRs. Description As developing country Parties start implementing their NDCs and participate to the ETF, a key focus for them will be to enhance their existing capacities in order to track their progress and report on their climate ambitions and actions. They will therefore want to tap into any opportunities available to enhance those capacities. As part of #Together4Transparency at COP27, this event highlights some of those financial, technical and capacity-building support opportunities available to developing country Parties for implementing the MRV arrangements under the Convention and the ETF under the Paris Agreement. The climate change secretariat, together with international partners, will showcase their work, the support opportunities available and how developing country Parties could go about accessing them. The event will be open to the public to follow through a webcast.
