COP26 Catalyst for Climate Action: Action recommendations for capacity building

Original: Wilton Park

ICAT supported the COP26 Catalyst for Climate Action as a Technical Partner for the Transparency and Reporting Action Group

COP26 Catalyst for Climate Action is a framework initiated by the UK COP26 Presidency and convened by Wilton Park, which brings together key stakeholders on capacity building in support of the Paris Agreement to discuss challenges and to catalyse action in four key thematic areas.

In addition to regular meetings of Action Groups comprising technical experts and partner countries, Wilton Park hosted a series of regional and global conversations to better understand the capacity-building challenges faced by developing countries as they prepare to implement the Paris Agreement.

These conversations brought together key stakeholders on capacity building for access to finance, participation in carbon markets, action on adaptation, and transparency and reporting.

The Action Recommendations linked below communicate the key priorities for action in each of these areas, as identified by the Action Group members as well as by hundreds of stakeholders consulted during 2021.

  1. Action Recommendations on Adaptation Communication
  2. Action Recommendations on Participation in Carbon Markets
  3. Action Recommendations on Transparency and Reporting
  4. Action Recommendations on Access to Finance
