The Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme participated in the 4th session of the Caribbean NDC Virtual Exchange Platform
27 August 2020 – The Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme participated in the 4th session of the Caribbean NDC Virtual Exchange Platform on the subject: ‘Accounting and Progress Tracking in support of Caribbean NDCs’
As countries start to implement their NDC’s, they would need to establish their national accounting systems to track progress in their results.
In the context of its capacity building support to the Caribbean countries, Regional Collaboration Centre St-George’s /CCMRVH, in collaboration with the UNFCCC secretariat, AOSIS, NDC Partnership, Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and UNDP organised, on 27 August 2020, a virtual meeting on the accounting guidance and projections for tracking progress of NDCs as well as for reporting under the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF). Not less than 87 participants took part in this fruitful exchange.
On behalf of the Secretariat of the Organisation of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States, the Intra-ACP GCCA+ Programme also partnered to deliver this session, along with other institutions such as CA (Climate Analytics), IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency), GGGI (Global Green Growth Institute), SEI (Stockholm Environment Institute), and CCMRVH (Caribbean Cooperative Measurement, Reporting and Verification Hub).
Prior to the exchange, the panelists offered pre-recorded presentations to registered participants to enhance their understanding on the overview of accounting and tracking provisions for NDCs. Accordingly, participants were introduced to the relevant tools for modeling of projections.
It is in the same context, Dr. Pendo Maro Team Leader of the Intra-ACP-GCCA+ Programme made a presentation on the advantages of the ACP NDC Online tool, which is now ready for use and accessible to all members of the OACPS, in Spanish, English, French and Portuguese.

In the interactive discussions, panelists and participants shared their experience in working with the Caribbean Region. They also made a strong case that methodological consistency as well as collection and management of valuable data are critical factors, in the process of accounting and tracking progress for NDCs. In the closing remarks, participants were also invited to the 5th session of Pacific-Caribbean Virtual Exchange to be held on 24 September 2020, and which will focus on Experience with application of ICTU guidance.
