Climate Transparency - National Engagement in seven G20 Emerging Economies

As of: August 2019

Objective and activities

Climate Transparency brings together the most authoritative climate assessments and expertise of institutions from G20 countries. Jointly, these experts develop a credible, comprehensive and comparable picture on the climate performance of G20 countries - The annual Brown to Green Report includes easy-to-use information on mitigation, vulnerability and finance. Based on the report, the IKI project strives to enhance the knowledge of key actors on G20 climate performance and thus their readiness to push for more ambitious climate action in Argentina, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa. Workshops, briefings, targeted knowledge products and media work provide vital information to government representatives – particularly finance experts and ministries – G20 stakeholders, NGOs, think tanks and business.
