A Vision for Transparency of Climate Action in Africa
UN Climate Change News, 15 September 2022 - Ministers and other regional and international leaders met with experts at Africa Climate Week 2022 in Libreville, Gabon at the beginning of this month to lay out their vision for ambitious implementation of the new transparency arrangements under the Paris Agreement. The talks were designed to help implement the new Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) which builds on the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) process under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol. The new universal ETF foresees that all countries will report transparent information on climate action and support every two years, including on implementation and achievement of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which are climate action plans under the Paris Agreement. All countries are to submit their climate action reports by the end of 2024, the deadline established in the Paris Agreement.
