Project outcomes

The nodal ministry (MoEFCC) would be better equipped to lead, plan, coordinate, implement, monitor and evaluate policies, strategies, and programmes to enhance transparency, including communications with states and expert agencies in an effective manner

Bringing all stakeholder together through a web-based National Institutional Coordination System (NICS) to enhance efficiency and transparency with climate reporting

Ability to report GHG emission inventories as per IPCC 2006 guidelines (or latest applicable)

Information to facilitate clarity, transparency, and understanding of NDCs associated with climate actions

State focal points submitting information through NICS

Developing capacity retention mechanisms

Dissemination of relevant information on GHG inventories and NDC progress through the National Climate Registry (NCR)

Enhanced capacity to mobilise climate finance

Knowledge management and project-related learnings

Stakeholders

Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change

Prime Ministers' Council on Climate Change

State Action Plan in Climate Change Focal Points

Ministry of Coal

Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas

Sectoral focal points from ministry and public departments

Local and indigenous community

Knowledge Management Approaches

The National Institutional Coordination Mechanism (NICS) would serve as a coordination medium between data providers, data aggregators, and the policy planners. It will also act as a back-end archiving system maintaining disaggregated wealth of country level information.

Provision of training at the sectoral and state level will ensure that a cadre of trained experts will manage the knowledge sharing process and sustain this in the future as well.

Lead experts will come up with meaningful insights from the shared information, including  learnings  from  several  initiatives  and  associated  evaluation.

The National Climate Registry (NCR) will demonstrate complete transparency by placing relevant information in the public domain for further scrutiny and use by civil society organisations.

The entire process will be based on a consultative approach to minimise any oversights.
