The Climate Transparency Platform covers everything related to the Enhanced Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement and the continued reporting under the UNFCCC.
It provides a global overview of transparency initiatives and developing countries transparency efforts, allowing users to stay up-to-date on the latest developments, events, and knowledge products, as well as get detailed information on any developing country, support provider and transparency projects. The platform allows for vivid exchange within the climate transparency community, both through a Global Forum as well as ten Network Forums for peer-to-peer exchange and learning among countries.
The platform also serves as space for coordination among transparency support providers, and for countries to directly request support to cover specific needs for transparency in all areas of the Enhanced Transparency Framework.
The wider transparency community has an integral role in building and improving the Platform. This shared responsibility is the key to maintain engagement and keep all information up-to-date at all times.
One-stop-shop for climate transparency
As well as providing updated overviews and a direct avenue for getting support, the Platform serves as a one-stop-shop for all transparency information.
The Knowledge Centre of the Climate Transparency Platform contains everything from case studies to guidelines, offering a comprehensive and diverse range of knowledge products that can help build capacity and facilitate learning for policymakers, practitioners and experts.
Networks and forum
An essential part of the Platform is the focus on exchanging experiences and allowing users to learn from each other.
The Transparency Networks are the key support modality of the CBIT-GSP project through which support is provided to countries. The network activities include regional trainings, experience-sharing webinars, virtual workshops and direct technical support activities to countries based on their priorities and needs.
The Global Forum of the Climate Transparency Platform is a vibrant hub of knowledge, ideas, and discussions. This space serves as a virtual meeting place where individuals from all corners of the world gather to engage in meaningful conversations and exchange diverse perspectives on a wide range of topics within the climate transparency community.
An inclusive build
The design and build of the Climate Transparency Platform is based on an inclusive process. Stakeholder consultations were held with transparency experts, country & project focal points, and international agencies & initiatives.
The goal was to identify and define the key functions and features that meet the needs of a wide range of transparency stakeholders.
This also means that the current version of the Platform is bound to change and adapt to both arising needs and the user experiences going forward.
