What do we offer?

Management Areas

The Initiative for Climate Transparency in Latin America and the Caribbean was created to support the implementation of the Paris Agreement in the region from its reinforced transparency framework. To this end, the Initiative offers support in the development of public policy to establish the guidelines and strengthen the instruments that will allow:

Accounting, Monitoring and Updating of the NDCs

Support the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean to track progress, account for and update their National Determined Contributions (NDCs).

Conceptualization, Design and Development of Long Term Strategies

Strengthen the capacity of long-term planning exercises and link 2030 efforts with the 2050 vision through coordinating the implementation of the Paris Agreement, in a coordinated exercise with the Sustainable Development Goals and Domestic Policies plans.

Climate financing and enabling new investments

To guide the financing of climate action and enable new sources of investment to deal with climate change.

Technical axes

To carry out the consolidation of instruments, policies and actions for climate change, the Initiative also helps strengthen technical capacities in countries to:

  1. Conceptualisation, design and commissioning of the instruments necessary to perform the Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of GHG emission mitigation actions; Measurement and Evaluation (M&E) of actions in adaptation to the effects of climate change and monitoring of climate finance and means of implementation.
  2. Consolidation of institutional arrangements and commitments on climate change.
  3. Management, reporting and communication of climate information effectively.

Regional Program on Climate Transparency

The value proposal of the Climate Transparency Center is consolidated based on the proposal for a Regional Program on Climate Transparency:

Estrategias de Descarbonización de Largo Plazo (LTS)

Las estrategias a largo plazo sustentan a las Contribuciones Determinadas a Nivel Nacional (CDN) que debe presentar cada país y son cruciales para lograr los objetivos establecidos en el Acuerdo de París. El Acuerdo de París da flexibilidad a los gobiernos para definir sus objetivos nacionales y sus estrategias a largo plazo garantizan que las acciones inmediatas y las políticas a mediano y largo plazo apunten hacia cero emisiones netas (Net-Zero en inglés) para 2050. Esto es vital para limitar el aumento de la temperatura media mundial a 2° C y lo más cerca posible de 1,5 ° C para finales de siglo con respecto a la era pre-industrial.

Contribuciones determinadas a nivel nacional (NDC)

Son el núcleo del Acuerdo de París y de la consecución de esos objetivos a largo plazo. Las contribuciones determinadas a nivel nacional encarnan los esfuerzos de cada país para reducir las emisiones nacionales y adaptarse a los efectos del cambio climático.

Desarrollo de sistemas M&E para la adaptación

In the case of adaptation, the countries have focused their efforts on indicators and platform development, but have not dedicated a high % of resources from their projects to this issue.

Desarrollo de sistemas MRV para la mitigación

Este componente se enfoca en:

  • Mejora del inventario de GEI.
  • Diseño y desarrollo de plataformas de información.
  • Comprensión y coherencia de los sistemas e indicardores de MRV.
  • Contabilidad de las NDC como instrumento esencial para la ambición climática y la transparencia.
