Biennial Transparency Report Guidance and Roadmap Tool

Biennial Transparency Reports (BTRs) must be submitted by 31 December 2024 at the latest which is not far in the future: the best way to prepare is to take action today. The BTR Guidance and Roadmap Tool can help you plan for this! 

The Biennial Transparency Report (BTR) Guidance and Roadmap Tool, jointly developed by the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (PATPA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) guides developing countries in planning the preparation process of their first BTR as well as preparing a roadmap for implementing it. Led through six main steps, users of this hands-on and highly interactive tool will learn about key elements to be considered when planning for a BTR and good practices and recommendations for improving the quality of the process over time. The tool is meant to facilitate long-term planning and help in structuring and elaborating a roadmap for the BTR process. 

The BTR Tool is available for download in the download section on the right. Clicking on the link will download a zip file containing the Tool in Excel-format as well as additional information on installation and use.  

**Please note that the tool requires macros to run, so please make sure to follow the installation instructions contained in the zip file in order to have a smooth experience with the tool installation. 

For those seeking guidance into using the tool, the Quick tour into the BTR Guidance and Roadmap tool and the How To Use Guide found in the ZIP-file provide users with a quick look into the structure and content of the BTR Tool.
