Description of Support Provided

The ICAT project will support a participatory process to develop a proposal for a legal framework that mandates the establishment of a national transparency system.

This framework will govern the national transparency system by enforcing data collection, data management, and institutional arrangements for collecting, reporting, and verifying climate data at national level.
