international climate policy
A new paper from the Project for Advancing Climate Transparency examines how the Paris Agreement’s enhanced transparency framework's new requirements have been enhanced, highlights the experiences of countries’ related to transparency, and maps the initiatives and processes designed to support capacity building.
The history of efforts to create global agreements and governance mechanisms on the environment has been uneven.
Drawing on experience in 11 countries and the European Union, this paper provides core elements and concrete examples for jointly advancing the Sustainable Development Goals and climate actions under the Paris Agreement. Five key challenges are explored: coordinating institutions, aligning national climate and SDG-relevant targets, mainstreaming both set of goals into policy planning, optimizing financial resources, and building mutually reinforcing monitoring and reporting frameworks.
