The Paris Agreement requires each Party to the UNFCCC to regularly provide “Information necessary to track progress made in implementing and achieving its nationally determined contribution (NDC)” (Article 13(7)). This is known under the Paris Agreement as “Transparency” (also known as measurement, reporting and verification, or MRV). Transparency (or MRV) is about more than just providing information on progress towards your NDC - it can help countries actively steer towards those targets in the most effective and efficient manner possible and maximise national benefits.
Transparency doesn't need to be complex and costly, and can often be achieved with existing data. This webinar recording will give you a clear understanding of how you can use transparency/MRV in a simple manner to inform policy decision-making, helping to ensure that mitigation and adaptation actions bring all the desired benefits and that your NDC targets can be reached. You will also gain concrete ideas on how to track progress in implementing and achieving your NDCs.
This recording is suitable for anyone involved in planning and implementing NDCs and in climate policy and is hosted by our International MRV Knowledge Leader, Sina Wartmann and Principal Technical Consultant for Climate Change and Sustainability, James Harries.
