Moreover, the Paris Agreement, in its Article 13, raises the need for Parties to have an enhanced transparency framework that allows information to be available to assess if the necessary is being done in relation to compliance with the commitments assumed to face climate change.
This is a major challenge, especially for developing countries, which implies having the technical and institutional capacities to meet the reporting requirements, and the strategic planning to reduce GHG emissions with resilience.
The Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency Fund (CBIT), administered by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), supports the Peruvian government in improving its capacities to track and evaluate mitigation and adaptation within its NDCs, as well as financial resources that are used to work on these issues, contributing to improve the national transparency framework and the decision-making processes related to climate change.
The Ministry of Environment is the executing agency for the CBIT project in Peru, as the national climate change authority and in charge of the NDC progress tracking.
