Strengthening capacity in the agriculture and land-use sectors for enhanced transparency in implementation and monitoring of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement in Papua New Guinea
By 2020 PNG is preparing reports to the UNFCCC under the Paris Agreement Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) with strengthened agriculture and land use sector components including inventories of emissions by sources and sinks, and information necessary to track progress against priority actions identified in PNG’s NDC for these sectors
Institutional arrangements for coordinating information and data from the agriculture and land use sectors into ETF processes and reports enhanced.
Best practices on ETF reporting processes, information gathering, system infrastructure, and methodologies in the agriculture and land use sectors disseminated to relevant priority sectors.
Reporting on inventories of emissions sources and sinks and emissions reduction activities from agriculture and land-use sectors strengthened.
Monitoring and reporting of selected NDC priority adaptation actions in the agriculture and land use sectors strengthened.
