Streamlining Climate Reporting Processes in Eurasia


The Capacity -Building Initiative for Transparency - Global Support Programme (CBIT-GSP) aims to provide streamlined support and capacity-building at the national, regional, and global level to assist developing countries in responding to the reporting provisions under the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement’s Enhanced Transparency Framework. To support developing countries in the transition to the Biennial Transparency Reports (BTRs), to fulfill their reporting obligations toward the UNFCCC the Programme has organized a numerous webinar, regional in-person workshops and provided direct in-country support.

Countries of the Eurasian Network have already started activities related to development of their first BTRs, but in the same time, the countries have been required to report on climate and energy under the GovReg of the European Union (EU).  This is recognized as an opportunity to align two processes and reduce reporting burden of the countries by using the already developed IT reporting tools and systems of EEA to facilitate the UNFCCC reporting requirements. 

Expected outcomes

  • Comprehensive understanding of the overlap between UNFCCC and GovReg reporting requirements, enabling aligning the reporting templates for the two processes. 
  • Exchange of lessons learned and best practices among participants regarding reporting under both reporting obligations.
  • Good understanding of what actions the EEA are planning to take to align the reporting templates of the GoReg to facilitate exchange of information between the two formats.
  • Collaborative identification and exploration of opportunities to streamline and enhance reporting procedures.
  • Empowerment with knowledge and strategies to optimize reporting efficiency and accuracy for both UNFCCC and GovReg reporting mandates.
