Transparency and data

Improved transparency and accountability for climate policy and NDC implementation.

Partnering for the development of information systems and generation of climate scenarios.

Issues

Transparency

Monitoring and evaluating progress on NDCs is a challenge for Latin America. Several countries are interested and are now bound by Paris Accord regulations to develop integrated monitoring and evaluation systems for their climate policies, or NDCs, to foster transparency and accountability according to the Paris reporting requirements.

Improved M&E systems, if used appropriately, will support informed decision-making and policy implementation.

Data

The Latin American region is already highly exposed to multiple climate-related threats, such as tropical cyclones, floods, droughts and heat waves, and while the region's climate is already changing, further changes are anticipated in the coming decades.

For this reason, the countries of the region need to generate and manage large amounts of diverse climate and hydrological information, and to have qualified professionals in database management and the generation of climate services, in order to have accurate and quality information for decision-making on adaptation to climate change in different sectors and areas.

The Climate Governance Component supports Latin American countries in the improvement and development of climate information gathering and the generation of climate change scenarios for use in decision making and the drafting of policy and laws.

What can EUROCLIMA+ contribute?

Transparency

  • Strengthening or developing MRV and W&E systems, including the design of data collection processes and transparent reports and assessments on NDC objectives and international commitments under the Paris Agreement Transparency Framework and the 2030 Agenda, in accordance with country demands. To this end, it is also essential to deepen coordination and cooperation among Ministries for the implementation of M&E systems, particularly the Ministries of Environment and Planning.
  • Identification of indicators related to mitigation and adaptation measures included in NDCs, national policies, plans or strategies.

Data

  • The compilation of climate information and the generation of climate change scenarios with adequate spatial and temporal resolution.
  • The collection and processing of hydrological information of interest for the planning of adaptation measures.
  • Communication between users and providers of climate services so that information matches the needs of users, promoting communication networks and observation systems.
  • Climate and hydrological communication networks and observation systems.
  • Accessibility and use of climate services and hydrological information by users in different sectors.
  • The national meteorological and hydrological services of the EUROCLIMA+ countries to improve their capacity to provide customised climate-related services for different socioeconomic and environmental sectors (agriculture, forestry, disaster risks, among others).
  • Generation of customised climate services for different sectors.
  • Capacity building initiatives carried out for forecasting, climate scenarios and procedures for quality and harmonisation of information.
