The Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) has been awarded a two-year consultancy project from the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) to support the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) partner countries in implementing climate finance methodologies and strengthening their transparency capacities at the national level.
Understanding and reporting an accurate and comprehensive landscape of climate finance at the national level is essential for compliance with international agreements as well as successful NDC implementation. By establishing and implementing climate finance and transparency frameworks, the project will contribute to the ICAT’s ongoing initiatives that strengthen the transparency and effectiveness of climate policies and actions in developing countries.
Under this project CCAP will produce an integrated climate finance framework and support a set of capacity-building workshops that will help the ICAT partner countries achieve their NDC targets and sustainability goals in an efficient and transparent manner.
Aligned with international frameworks such as the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF), the Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) framework, and the United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Development Finance’s integrated National Financing Framework (INFF), both ex-ante and ex-post climate finance frameworks and methodologies will be proposed. In close collaboration with our partner, Gauss International, and the national consultants, CCAP will also ensure a successful implementation of the methodology. Furthermore, ad-hoc capacity building workshops and knowledge dissemination events for country representatives and national consultants will be conducted by CCAP consultants.
CCAP helps policymakers around the world develop, promote, and implement innovative, market-based solutions to major climate, air quality, and energy problems that balance both environmental and economic interests.
Core work areas include climate finance, developing country capacity building and facilitative dialogue, and the development of national climate strategies, sectoral mitigation programs, and climate finance proposals.
