About the webinar
In 2020, governments will communicate new/updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) which will become the basis for the global climate action under the Paris Agreement. This is closely related to other aspects of the Paris Agreement: The Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) and the Global Stocktake (GST).
The ETF aims to provide a clear understanding of climate action, including clarity and tracking progress towards achieving Parties’ NDCs and adaptation actions, to inform the GST. The ETF applies to all Parties with flexibility to those developing country Parties that need it in the light of their capacities. The ETF includes reporting of the information through Biennial Transparency Reports (BTRs), technical expert review of the BTRs and the facilitative multilateral consideration of progress. The first BTRs are to be submitted by 2024 and the first GST will be held in 2023.
At COP 24 in Katowice, Parties agreed on further guidance on NDCs, including elaborated guidance on the information to facilitate clarity, transparency and understanding (ICTU). This guidance, voluntary for the 2020 NDCs but mandatory for all Parties as of 2025, provides clarification on the information that Parties need to provide in their NDCs.
This webinar will provide an overview of the process and key provisions related with the NDCs and ETF. The webinar will be held in English. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org.
