Initiative for Climate Action Transparency Publishes New Set of Tools to Help Achieve the Paris Agreement

We are pleased to announce that the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) has launched a series of Assessment Guides, a practical and easy-to-use set of methodologies which will help countries assess the impacts of policies and actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, achieve sustainable development outcomes and drive transformational change. Verra is one of the founding partners of this initiative.

ICAT is also holding a series of webinars to support policymakers and technical experts in utilizing the Assessment Guides. Through these sessions, ICAT seeks to help these audiences improve policy design and implementation, inform goal-setting (e.g., for NDCs), track progress towards these goals, provide information for reporting domestically or internationally, and attract finance by demonstrating the results of effective policies.

We would like to bring the following three webinars related to GHG impact assessment to your attention:

  • Webinar #4 on Forest Methodology: 17 June 15:00 CET / 9:00 AM EDT – Register here.
  • Webinar #5 on Renewable Energy Methodology: 24 June 15:00 CET / 9:00 AM EDT – Register here.
  • Webinar #6 on Transport Pricing Methodology: 8 July 15:00 CET / 9:00 AM EDT – Register here.

We hope you’ll be able to join these sessions. If you have any questions, please reach out to
