Many thanks to all who helped improve ICAT’s guidance by participating in our recent public consultation. This public consultation period was open for 60 days, from 26 July to 25 September 2017.
We reviewed all comments and prepared a summary of how comments were considered in the revision process for the May 2018 version of the guidance documents. Click here to read the public consultation summary or visit the ICAT series of guidance page to access the guidance.
Though the formal consultation period has ended, we welcome feedback at any time. If you have any questions regarding the ICAT process, please email Sinclair Vincent at svincent [at] verra [dot] org
The 10 guidance documents that comprise the ICAT series of guidance provide methods focused on helping users assess the impacts of policies and actions that:
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
- Achieve sustainable development outcomes, and
- Drive transformational change.
More than 160 technical working group members contributed to this initial guidance. Comments on the guidance will help ensure that the guidance is clear and meets country needs.
Most comments were provided via Collaborase
Collaborase is an online system that facilitates transparency by collating all submitted comments on one interactive platform. It allows commenters to provide comments by section, save comments and return at a later date and update previously made comments. Collaborase can also be easily accessed with mobile devices such as a smartphone.
A series of webinars were hosted at the beginning of the consultation period to provide an introduction to the guidance. You can access the webinar recordings and download the slides at the links provided below:
