    Forests play a central role in combating climate change by absorbing and storing carbon from the atmosphere in their vegetation and soils. Therefore, given the significant climate change mitigation potential of forests, improving the transparency of forest-related data and information within the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement is timely, indeed urgent, in order to translate this potential into action. A fully functioning multipurpose national forest monitoring system (NFMS) allows countries to track progress on climate action and effectively report on forest-related emissions and removals, as well as respond to their own forest data needs. With tailored national forest monitoring systems, countries are able to develop informed forest and land-use policies with proven knowledge and up-to date, transparent and accessible information. Ultimately, NFMS can help countries to meet the requirements of the transparency framework under the Paris Agreement. This paper explores how forest monitoring can help countries better manage their natural resources, meet the requirements of the ETF and ultimately, to implement and enhance their Nationally Determined Contributions. The paper also looks at the importance of data transparency and knowledge sharing for capacity building and technology transfer, and for enhancing collaboration and global ambition in tackling climate change. The paper presents case studies on transparency in the forest sector and available tools. In addition, the paper will examine how transparency in the forest sector can inform policy-making, and on the other hand, how policy and governance can support and enhance transparency in the forest sector at the same time.

    Developing countries continue to face skills gaps when implementing their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and fulfilling their reporting requirements under the Paris Agreement. Provided with adequate support, universities and scientific institutions could play a key role in narrowing these gaps. This webinar focused on how academia can help strengthen and retain domestic capacities in developing countries; and train the next generation of climate practitioners. It also showed how youth can play a more active role in climate related processes.
