Strengthening systems for monitoring and evaluating climate policies under the Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030 - Regional

This multi-country transparency and strategic cooperation initiative for long-term planning joins four implementing agencies (GIZ, FIIAPP, ECLAC and UNEP) working together under the coordination of UNEP for the Regional Climate Transparency Centre. This initiative aims to respond to a request from five countries in the region (Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay) regarding urgent needs arising from the development of long-term strategies - LTSs and nationally determined contributions - NDCs.

This project aims to increase capacities for institutional and technical strengthening in the creation of models, data forecasting, development of mitigation scenarios and analyses of climate vulnerability and risk; as well as, in the analysis of investment opportunities in climate change adaptation and disruptive technologies that motivate climate planning and action in the region.

In addition, the Multi-country initiative aims to generate climate strategies and targets that are comparable to each other and consistent with IPCC scenarios for keeping average global temperature increases below 1.5C. Similarly, it is expected to build capacities in Latin America to address the effects of climate change by taking preventive and timely decisions with a long-term horizon.

Expected Results


Development of capacities

Developing capacities for the preparation of LTSs with resilient climate visions and net zero emissions by mid-century.


Building capacities in local governments and stakeholders in the territory for the implementation of LTSs and NDCs.

Increasing ambition

The aim is to analyse and establish a link between LTSs and NDCs by promoting updating and increasing ambition in the commitments for 2030.
