UNDP and the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Armenia are implementing “Building Armenia’s National Transparency Framework under Paris Agreement” UNDP-GEF Project (CBIT Project). The immediate objective of the project is to meet enhanced transparency requirements as defined in Article 13 of the Paris Agreement by strengthening institutional and technical capacity for measuring and reporting on emissions, mitigation and adaptation activities, and support received.
Article 13 of the Paris Agreement establishes an Enhanced Transparency Framework in order to provide a clear understanding of climate change action through reporting on action and support received. The transparency framework shall build on and enhance the transparency arrangements under the Convention, including national communications, biennial update reports and international consultation and analysis. Paragraphs 7 to 10 of Article 13 require each Party to regularly provide a national inventory report, information necessary to track progress made in implementing and achieving its Nationally determined contributions (NDC), information related to climate change impacts and adaptation, and information on support received. Article 13 also requires all Parties to establish institutions for ongoing monitoring.
Output 3.2.3 of the CBIT Project aims to develop sectoral templates and guidelines for assessing and reporting on mitigation policies and actions and their effects. In particular, a common approach for assessing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions from mitigation measures in the Energy sector should be proposed.
