Building Capacity for the Paris Agreement's Enhanced Transparency Framework

Capacity building is essential to drive climate transparency. The 2015 Paris Agreement outlines an "enhanced transparency framework" including greater requirements for developing countries. Some developing countries have struggled to fulfill pre–Paris Agreement transparency requirements and will need capacity-building support to implement the Paris Agreement’s more stringent requirements.

New efforts to build capacity for the transparency framework need not "start from scratch" but should build on and learn from the history of transparency and capacity building under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
