Title
Strengthening Capacity in the Energy, Agriculture, Forestry and other Land-use Sectors for Enhanced Transparency in the Implementation and Monitoring of Benin's Nationally Determined Contribution
Objective

By 2023 Benin is preparing reports to the UNFCCC under the Paris Agreement Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) with strengthened energy, agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sector components including inventories of emission sources and sinks and information necessary to track progress against priority actions identified in Benin’s NDC for these sectors.
