Webinar NDC Tracking


Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) are at the heart of the Paris Agreement and the achievement of its long-term goals. NDCs embody efforts by each country to reduce national emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Paris Agreement requires each Party to prepare, communicate and maintain successive NDCs that it intends to achieve. Parties shall pursue domestic mitigation measures, with the aim of achieving the objectives of such contributions.

Tracking NDCs is a requirement under the Paris Agreement’s Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF). It requires transparent quantitative and qualitative information on the implementation and achievement of the NDC, including indicators comparing current or projected emissions, and information that helps better understand the NDC target and its impacts.

The Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency - Global Support Programme (CBIT-GSP) is organizing this webinar to develop the capacity of the Anglophone Caribbean Network to better understand the reporting requirements under the Paris Agreement on NDCs, to identify indicators, and track the mitigation commitments of their NDCs.


The main objective of the workshop is to support country teams in charge of reporting NDC mitigation commitments under the Paris Agreement in technical understanding of the goals, principles, and actions associated with the reporting process for NDC mitigation commitments under the Paris Agreement.


Specific objectives:

  • Provide these national mitigation teams with useful information and experiences to facilitate their reporting to the UNFCCC under the Paris Agreement, preparing them to use the ETF´s common tabular format (CTF).
  • Participate putting into practice concrete situations of mitigation assessment, tracking and report, having in mind reporting under the ETF.
  • Exchange experiences and lessons learned, corresponding to the application of tools and systems for mitigation assessment, tracking and reporting.
  • Identify common challenges and opportunities for collaboration among country teams on mitigation assessment, tracking and reporting.


This activity is intended for technical officers who coordinate the tracking and reporting of NDC mitigation commitments in the countries Caribbean Regional Network. This includes national government staff of ministries or agencies in lead of climate change as well as relevant sectoral ministries, and staff from other relevant institutions involved in reporting under the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement (e.g., in the preparation of first BTRs).
