CCXG Global Forum September 2017, BGC Transparency of reporting on mitigation: Issues and options for an enhanced framework by Sara Moarif

  1. 1. Climate Change Expert Group www.oecd.org/env/cc/ccxg.htm Transparency of reporting on mitigation: Issues and options for an enhanced framework Sara Moarif (IEA) CCXG Global Forum on the Environment and Climate Change September 2017 Based on “Enhancing mitigation and finance reporting” (Vallejo, Moarif & Halimanjaya; draft)
  2. 2. 2 Climate Change Expert Group Overview  Two examples of what is challenging about developing common reporting guidelines for mitigation o What does current experience teach us about these challenges? o What are some options for addressing these challenges?  Steps to move forward with developing reporting guidelines
  3. 3. 3 Climate Change Expert Group 1. Accommodating different country capacities and enabling continuous improvement for all Lessons from current experience  Parties will report what they can  Common guidelines = reporting same content  Guidelines are helpful when they include guidance
  4. 4. 4 Climate Change Expert Group 1. Accommodating different country capacities and enabling continuous improvement for all Options for balancing flexibility with improvement  Explicitly include “no backsliding” as principle in guidelines  Provide maximum amount of guidance as relevant to the NDCs of all Parties  Include “improvement plans” to establish realistic reporting goals and prioritise capacity development
  5. 5. 5 Climate Change Expert Group 2. Accommodating diverse NDCs with the goal of informing the global stocktake Lessons from current experience  Vague guidelines did not help with communicating diverse mitigation actions  What is difficult to measure and estimate, is difficult to report clearly and consistently 5
  6. 6. 6 Climate Change Expert Group 2. Accommodating diverse NDCs with the goal of informing the global stocktake Options for balancing diversity with comparability  Use accounting guidance to provide common set of methods for assessing progress with diverse NDCs  Have a basic set of common metrics, definitions, information  Provide guidance to enable transparency where comparability not possible 6
  7. 7. 7 Climate Change Expert Group Potential ways forward for developing reporting guidelines  Work to agree on the specific information Parties would like from each other, in line with the diversity of NDCs  Consider what type of guidance and tools would help Parties report that information  Provide as much detail and advice as possible (within guidelines and/or through other processes)  Acknowledge that not all Parties, especially developing country Parties, will be able to fulfil reporting guidelines
  8. 8. 8 Climate Change Expert Group Conclusion  Challenges to developing common reporting guidelines can technically be addressed o There are several options to do so o Parties must find common ground when it comes to acceptability of options
