Transparency

The Under2 Coalition’s Transparency workstream supports signatories to strengthen their greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting capacity, increase transparent disclosure of their climate change mitigation progress and solve the most challenging sectoral accounting challenges.

Transparency

Capacity building

For governments, a robust understanding of their emissions is essential to raise public awareness of climate change, and functions as the backbone of their climate plan. It is also an essential element for supporting their national government with improving their own targets for climate action.

The Climate Group, as Secretariat of the Under2 Coalition, helps regions in developing and newly industrialised countries to better understand the mitigation opportunities by improving and expanding Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of GHG emissions and undertaking MRV of mitigation actions where sufficiently robust GHG inventories are in place.

We're increasing transparent disclosure of states and regions' climate data.
Transparency coupled with communication accelerates climate action.
