Climate tracking and transparency webinar series
The World Resources Institute’s Tracking and Strengthening Climate Action (TASCA) initiative, together with the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement, are pleased to launch a Climate Tracking and Transparency webinar series with 12 sessions held throughout 2018.
We invite you to join us as we explore critical topics that support domestic transparency systems for Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Webinars will feature presentations and interactive discussion among experts, practitioners and national government representatives.
The series kicks off on June 12th at 9 am EDT with an in depth look at how to measure corporate and facility-level emissions. This webinar will include the perspective of national policymakers. We welcome your participation and hope you can join us!
Webinars will be recorded and made available online for those who are unable to attend. Please register so you can receive video recordings.

Tracking Policy Implementation
This webinar series supports WRI's Tracking and Strengthening Climate Action initiative which provides governments with tools and resources to track the implementation and effects of NDCs and the underlying policies that support them. This is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
The Transparency Partnership supports international efforts to engage in practical exchanges and political dialogue on climate transparency. The new enhanced transparency system being designed under the Paris Agreement is of particular importance in this context, as it helps build up mutual trust, fosters partner countries’ growing ambitions, and by this, helps to limit global temperature rise to well below 2°C and ideally to 1.5°C.
