To maximize impact, ICAT works hand-in-hand with local partners to ensure that capacity is developed and stays close to the countries, and local experts can build networks to share experience.
Which is why ICAT helps to establish and manage regional hubs that efficiently build capacity for climate action transparency closely aligned with local needs.
ICAT’s Regional Hubs pilot, adapt, and scale solutions that are tailored to the respective regional environments and the needs of its member countries.
Fostering peer-to-peer engagement and sharing of experiences, ICAT’s Regional Hubs enable a thriving community of practice for climate transparency.
ICAT’s focus on local needs and priorities strengthens countries’ capacity to maintain and continually enhance robust transparency frameworks that deliver domestic benefits and are hence sustained over the long-term.
The Regional Hub for Central Africa, hosted by the Economic Community for Central African States (ECCAS) supports the 11 ECCAS Member States in their efforts to build and improve sustainable and comprehensive transparency frameworks. As a result, national decision-makers, policymakers, investors and stakeholders will be in a better position to advance climate mitigation and adaptation actions and countries able to meet the reporting requirements of the Paris Agreement.
The Regional Hub for Central Asia, hosted by the Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC), aims to build capacity and create a network in the region to support the 5 Member Countries in their efforts to improve/build sustainable and comprehensive transparency Frameworks.

Additional Regional Hubs are yet to be defined but are envisaged to cover other sub-regions in Asia or Latin America. If you are interested to either host a Regional Hub or fund its establishment, please contact the ICAT Secretariat.
