About the Webinar

We are at a key moment for countries to take action towards increasing the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). As established by the Paris Agreement, countries will have until 2020 to reassess their climate plans and commit to a level of ambition that avoids global warming above 1.5 ° C.

This webinar, co-organized by LEDS LAC and the NDC Partnership, is the second in a series of six webinars focused on reviewing and increasing the ambition of acquired climate commitments. We will discuss country experiences to identify the links between the NDC cycle and the continuous improvement of national MRV systems for greenhouse gas emissions and removals.

The objective of the webinar is to provide a better understanding of the Katowice Climate Package and the communication and reporting obligations of the Parties under the Paris Agreement. It will also open a space to share information on the modalities, procedures and guidelines for the implementation of the Transparency Framework. We will explore some of the challenges developing countries are facing and learn about Chile’s experience developing its national greenhouse gas inventory. The webinar will be held in Spanish.
