JOIN US: ICAT events at COP26

It is undeniable that there is a lot riding on COP26 for a variety of reasons. Underpinning many of them is the further work required to make the ETF fully operational in time for Parties to submit their first Biennial Transparency Reports (BTRs) by 2024. It is therefore important for countries to have clear guidance and access to the necessary information, expertise, and support available.

The Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) is therefore jointly hosting or supporting a number of events at COP26, all of which are aimed at supporting your transparency efforts.

If you have questions about any of the events featured below, please get in touch with the ICAT Secretariat.

Building long-term capacity in Central Africa: Launch of the Regional Climate Action Transparency Hub

11:00 – 12:00 GMT / 4 November 2021

Congo Basin Climate Commission (CBCC) Pavilion

Organised by: Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), Aether, ICAT

Join us as we publicly launch the inaugural Regional Climate Action Transparency Hub in Central Africa. The Hub will develop a team of regional experts that will support countries in developing and maintaining sustainable climate change related data gathering, reporting and stakeholder engagement systems.

Once developed, the Hub will provide valuable insights, information and knowledge to local, national and regional economic, social and environmental strategies and decision makers, helping them to plot, and monitor, the best possible course to climate neutral, resilient communities, cities and nations over the next 15 years.

ICAT’s experience has shown that the overall quality of NDCs and their implementation has increased on the basis of sound data. Drawing on lessons learnt from Nigeria, Chad, and India (TERI), this event will explore different ways countries are using data to strengthen climate action. Nigeria is now developing sectoral MRV systems and a tracking framework for mitigation.
