Current Affair 4:
Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT)


Ok, I will explain you here, how I prepare Current Affairs. Suppose for this article:

I went to UNFCCC website to search for important news. I found their Transparency Initiative.:

I did further research on this, then I found ICAT. So, I covered ICAT here.

ICAT is a voluntary multilateral initiative, launched in November 2015, whose members are both donor countries and non-governmental actors.

Despite being a voluntary initiative, ICAT aims to contribute to the implementation of the Paris Agreement for the fight against climate change and, in particular, it aims to increase the capacity of beneficiary countries in reporting and transparency, in implementing their mitigation and adaptation commitments at national level.

The Initiative works with countries to build capacities on understanding and applying tools and approaches to measure, report and verify (MRV) greenhouse gas emissions reductions and adaptation action.

ICAT works closely with its partner countries to develop policy-focused, priority-driven projects that develop the information and data frameworks and related capacity to improve the implementation, tracking, and enhancement of their NDCs and reporting.

Example of one project in India:

The initiative is managed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
