The role of institutional arrangements in the Enhanced Transparency Framework

19 November 2020, 14.00 - 15.30 (Rome, GMT +2)
This webinar examined the role of Institutional Arrangements (IA) in the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) - with a particular focus on the agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sectors. Participants learned more about the IA, the requirements for IAs under the ETF, and how to improve their national GHG inventory systems to this end.

Main objectives

  • Highlight the importance of establishing and maintaining robust and sustainable Institutional Arrangements (IA) for transparency.
  • Showcase practical examples of how to establish and maintain robust and sustainable IA and national GHG inventory systems.
  • Present the revised version of the IA templates of the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) that can help countries identify the main elements for assessing their status and further improve their systems. Both the primary and supplemental IA templates with the full updated package will be presented. 
  • Identify additional support needed from countries.

Target audience

Staff from national institutions in CBIT- AFOLU countries (global project and national CBIT projects).
