The webinar «Addressing transparency in agriculture and land use sectors» is now online! Countries have adopted the necessary guidelines for the implementation of the expanded transparency framework. They agreed to report, as part of the Enhanced Transparency Framework, on documents known as biennial transparency reports (BFR) and agreed that the first FRBs would be due by December 31, 2024. Countries will complete their existing transparency reports by 31 December 2022 (for industrialized countries) and 31 December 2024 (for developing countries). The 2015 Paris Agreement is a pioneering agreement in which signatory states have pledged to take steps to limit the rise in the world`s average temperature to less than 2 degrees Celsius and to try to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Palestinian Authority`s Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) for Action and Assistance sets out how countries should report on their progress in mitigating and adapting to climate change. Indeed, the ETF is the backbone of the Paris Agreement, because it creates confidence by making climate change coverage more «transparent». New online learning course: the preparation of an inventory of greenhouse gases as part of the expanded transparency framework Given the scope of negotiations under the expanded transparency framework, countries did not have time to make decisions on all technical aspects of the framework at COP24. The countries left three technical issues as a result of the discussions: improving the transparency framework is essential for the design, credibility and functioning of the Paris Agreement. The development of the transparency part of the regulations did not begin from scratch, as countries were able to draw on the experience of the UNFCCC. However, unlike previous UNFCCC agreements, the Paris Agreement established a common set of rules for all countries, while providing flexibility to developing countries that need it. This guide aims to provide users with the practical information you need to prepare and verify the necessary reports and communications under the existing transparency system, which will likely remain the same as part of improving the transparency framework of the Paris Agreement. In particular, improving the transparency framework allows countries to report their greenhouse gas emissions, make progress towards their NDCs, impact on climate change and adaptation, assistance and mobilization, and receive the necessary and received assistance. The enhanced transparency framework also includes procedures for technical experts to verify notified information and a multilateral peer review where countries can ask questions.
