Togo Launches Initiative for Climate Action Transparency

(Togo First) - Togo recently launched the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT-Togo). Backed by the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), ICAT-Togo aims to consolidate the country's climate change achievements and improve the Reporting and Verification (MRV) framework, which assesses these achievements.

ICAT-Togo will improve Togo's greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory data, and introduce systems and procedures to ensure the data’s accuracy. This will help better integrate the data at sub-national levels and in the national reporting process.

According to Yaou Mery, Director of Environment, this initiative is a recommendation of COP21 and "will enable Togo to put in place a solid framework that responds to national priorities in managing climate issues".

Togo is not the only African country to benefit from the UNFCCC’s support. Namibia, Uganda, Madagascar, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Malawi, and Guinea have also joined the scheme.
