Institutional Readiness to Implement the Enhanced Transparency Framework: Is India Ready?
The idea of transparency for reporting and reviewing information on climate policies and measures taken by Parties has emerged as one of the key elements gaining attention and weight under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The transparency framework has been evolving in detail and complexity aimed at maximizing mutual confidence between Parties while ensuring that the Parties are not unduly stretched beyond their capacities.
But what are the implications of this framework for India? As key parameters of the transparency regime are negotiated and agreed upon, India will have to strengthen its domestic institutional framework on the MRV of climate actions.
This working paper intends to capture the recent developments on the transparency framework post-COP24, its implications on developing Parties and assess India’s institutional readiness to comply with emerging requirements under the new enhanced transparency framework so as to effectively implement the PA.
