New publications in the framework of transparency, accounting and Monitoring-Reporting-Verification

The Paris Agreement introduces the obligation of accountability or accounting of the NDCs, thereby allowing the international community to monitor achievements of national contributions. The Agreement also strengthens one of the Convention’s initial principles, transparency, by converting it into the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF).

The first publication ("Deciphering MRV, accounting and transparency for the post-Paris era") explores the linkages and interactions between accounting, transparency and MRV, assesses these concepts’ evolution over time, and concludes by examining the status of activities under the Paris Agreement and what has been achieved so far.

The second publication ("Starting points for GHG accounting for developing countries under the Paris Agreement"), which is written in Spanish, covers the seven principles of accounting with the aim of discussing its possible application in the context of the NDC in the countries.
