The UNFCCC Climate Action and Support Transparency Training, or UNFCCC-CASTT, is a capacity building programme designed to cater to stakeholders at all levels of competencies within national climate governance and implementation. Through a holistic approach to capacity-building and development, the programme draws on the knowledge of a multitude of climate change professionals to provide trainees with the theoretical and practical methods needed to take transformative action.

The development of effective climate strategies to implement appropriate and cost-effective mitigation actions rests upon the availability of comprehensive data and the application of sound assessment methods for emission reduction potentials. Unfortunately, many countries lack comprehensive sector-specific emission inventories and mitigation scenario analysis to inform sound climate action planning. The UNFCCC together with partner organizations are addressing this in the form of the development of a Compendium on national and sector specific GHG Baselines and Monitoring that countries could use to better estimate and report on greenhouse emission reductions/removals arising from implementation of mitigation actions.
