Ad-hoc Facility

One feature of the Information Matters (IM) project is to provide support to countries through its Ad-hoc Facility. It aims to address needs identified by countries with regard to preparing Biennial Update Reports (BURs), establishing sustainable measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems and laying the groundwork for future transparency requirements. This support is provided through targeted activities, such as one-time capacity-building workshops or the provision of expert advice.

Find out more about the areas of support and the application procedure of the Ad-hoc Facility by downloading the Factsheet - available in English, Spanish and French.
