Dominican Republic

ICAT has worked with the Dominican Republic to enhance transparency in both adaptation and mitigation. On mitigation, the ICAT projects led to the establishment of a legal framework to manage a national MRV/transparency system, aligned with the ETF of the Paris Agreement and covering data collection, data management and institutional arrangements. Currently ICAT is supporting the implementation and operationalization of the National MRV/Transparency System, enhancing capacity and providing sector-specific guidance. On adaptation, the ICAT project built capacity in planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating adaptation actions, strengthening the transparency framework for the agriculture sector, and specifically the banana sub-sector.
