ICAT Policy Assessment Guides

The ICAT Policy Assessment Guides provide governments and other users with the means to assess how national policies and actions impact their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their sustainable development objectives. As 2020 is the year countries are expected to update their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the Guides can improve policy design and implementation, inform goal setting such as for NDCs, track progress towards these goals, provide information for reporting, and generate data to help attract finance.

The series of ICAT Assessment Guides are an easy-to-use set of methodologies. They were designed to be used by policymakers and technical experts in combination or separately and include templates and real examples from partner countries to facilitate their application.
