IGES Support activity for Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF)

Based on the Paris Agreement’s enhanced transparency framework (ETF), countries regularly provide information on their progress with national climate actions. IGES supports full implementation of the ETF by all countries, especially in Asia.

Researcher’s perspectives

Why should we care about the ETF?

The ETF is crucial for tracking the progress of implementing and achieving NDCs and for holding countries accountable for what they have pledged on their NDCs. BTRs are key national-level climate reports submitted under the PA for reporting how countries are implementing climate actions toward their pledged emission reduction targets. BTRs can also serve as the basis for countries to identify additional actions and support needed for implementing the NDCs.

Why is capacity building needed for ETF implementation?

The enhanced reporting requirements for BTRs are challenging for many developing countries. Although the ETF includes specific flexibilities for the developing country Parties that need flexibility in the light of their capacities, those countries still need capacity building and support for preparing and submitting their BTRs. Therefore, enhancing their capacity at the technical and institutional levels is essential to prepare their BTR and for the successful implementation of the ETF.
