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. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.

RALI GHG MRV Harmonization Framework

Countries around the world have set ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and are now pursuing a breadth of mitigation actions across sectors and at all scales, from local projects to national policies. These developments make it more important than ever that countries not only identify methods to measure the impacts of these mitigation activities, but also that they capture these impacts in their national inventories to improve the accuracy of their greenhouse gas reporting. This new guide, developed by the RALI team, provides a “turn-key” approach for national inventory teams, mitigation activity implementers, and other climate change practitioners to successfully apply the Harmonization Framework to a selected mitigation activity, and can be used to improve national GHG accounting.

About the webinar

The Chilean Agency for Sustainability and Climate Change promotes the inclusion of climate change and sustainable development in private sector strategies, through public-private agreements and the execution of programs and projects that contribute to the construction of a low-emission resilient economy. The Clean Production Agreements (APL, for its acronym in Spanish) are voluntary agreements that establish actions and goals to achieve clean production in a given period. The APL instrument was the first NAMA (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action), registered and recognized in the world in 2012.

Chilealimentos, a private association of the processed food sector, the main exporter of processed fruits and vegetables in the Southern hemisphere, is finishing its third APL.  The consolidation and dissemination of the results of this APL have been supported in the framework of the Community of Practice Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy Processes in Latin America, facilitated by the EUROCLIMA+ Program through GIZ, LEDS LAC Secretariat and the CLACDS of INCAE Business School.

This webinar will present the  the sustainability and climate change indicators of Chilealimentos, and share the APL methodology which can be replicated in other sectors and countries. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
