This paper discusses methodological assumptions to estimate the collective impact of mitigation commitments and targets of non-state and subnational entities. It serves as a supplement to the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) Non-State and Subnational Action Guide. The paper will facilitate users in employing methods that are suitable for their specific objectives when determining the collective impact of mitigation actions taken by cities, businesses and states. It will also promote greater transparency in reporting impact assessment results.

This report is intended to provide practitioners and technical experts with an understanding of what producing a BTR’s Adaptation Section (A-BTR) will involve in practice. In providing this understanding, this document makes an attempt to interpret the guidance for the A-BTR provided by the annex to decision 18/ CMA.1, as well as relevant aspects of other UNFCCC decisions, agreements, and publications.
The report provides countries with relevant examples of indicators, which may be used in pursuing domestic monitoring tasks as well as in reporting on progress towards implementation and achievement on Parties’ NDCs.
This report focuses on the reporting requirements for developing countries and intends to inform these countries on how to prepare for the new reporting requirements set out in MPGs for the ETF, referred to in Article 13 of the Paris Agreement.
