 What is Climate Action Transparency and why it’s important?

Transparency is the foundational basis of the Paris Agreement which enables effectiveness in domestic policy processes and ensures integration of climate action into countries’ national planning. It also assists countries in the implementation of actions and policies as well as on monitoring the targets set before 2030 and beyond.

The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change, which was adopted at the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP21) in Paris by 196 Parties. The Treaty was adopted on 12 December 2015 and came into force on 4 November 2016. By adopting the Paris Agreement, countries demonstrate their commitments to limit global temperature rise and agree to prepare successive nationally determined contributions (NDCs). To achieve such an ambitious goal, mutual trust and successful cooperation is essential, so is transparency.

Transparency is crucial since it allows the global community to monitor collective progress and ensures the parties that everyone is playing their part. In fact, providing access to timely and reliable GHG emissions data, climate-related policies, and responses, helps governments make evidence-based decisions. Enabling transparency and reporting on action also enhances scientific understanding of climate change as well as the actions and policies needed to mitigate it and adapt to its impacts.
