Abstract
Developing countries often lack the technical capacity, tools and robust institutional frameworks to enable regular reporting on the implementation progress of the Paris Agreement. Reporting is crucial for creating national and global overview of the mitigation efforts, adaptation plans and support needed and received towards enhanced climate ambitions. The Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) was established to build mutual trust and confidence, allow comparability and ensure accountability among Parties, and to promote effective implementation. With the Nordic Declaration on Carbon Neutrality from 2019, the Nordic Prime Ministers agreed to intensify the focus on climate change in development cooperation. Thus, the Nordic Climate and Air Pollution group (NKL) has initiated this project to facilitate Nordic initiatives to support the implementation of the ETF in Developing countries.
