On October 27, the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) presented the first version of the implementation guide on climate finance transparency to the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) Secretariat, the project implementation partner Gauss International, and three countries where the guide is being applied to: Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, and Belize. By sharing the methodological approach and relevant examples of tools that can be applied, CCAP aimed to help government officers in charge to better understand the outline of work and how to use the presented tools that will provide support during the implementation process.
After having several discussions with ICAT partners and the Secretariat and participating in workshops with countries in Bonn, Germany, and Copenhagen, Denmark, CCAP has finalized the first version of the implementation guide. As part of the pilot project implementation, this was the first meeting in which CCAP presented its methodology in a complete and comprehensive manner and engaged with three countries and other partners where the pilot project will be implemented.

To continue the conversation on this topic and sustain the momentum with countries, CCAP and ICAT, together with Nigeria, will host an official side event on transparency during COP27 on November 14. More information on this side event will become available as we get closer to dates of the conference.
