Based on the main findings from the Summer School as well as including experiences and debates beyond the Summer School, this knowledge product was developed in order to provide knowledge to climate policy practitioners and experts and help enable them to enhance transparency for planning and implementation of national mitigation actions as well as for tracking progress towards the 2°C objective internationally. It will provide insight into various approaches to accounting and tracking of progress and their requirements as well as advantages and disadvantages. It discusses how national frameworks may be embedded into an international context via standards and (new) market mechanisms. It shall provide support for the discussions under the UNFCCC to develop accounting standards and rules that could be applied to all Parties.
