Transparency Working Group

Transparency of action and support will underpin a credible climate regime. It is critical for building trust between Parties and holding them to account in the fulfillment of their commitments, and is needed to both understand what countries are offering in their INDCs and to track progress of mitigation, means of implementation, and adaptation actions.

CAN therefore believes that Parties should move towards a robust MRV framework, with 2016-2020 acting as a transition period, and that most developing countries will only be able to enhance their efforts with sufficient provision of support; taking into account LDCs.

The CAN Transparency & MRV working group’s advocacy efforts to this end include intelligence gathering, organizing bilateral meetings with Parties, text analysis, and producing ECO articles.
