The project aims to assist Algeria in the preparation and submission of its First Biennial Transparency Report (BTR1) and a combined Second Biennial Transparency Report and Fourth National Communication report (BTR2/NC4) for the fulfillment of the obligations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement (PA) in line with the Modalities, procedures and guidelines (MPGs) for the transparency framework for action and support referred to in Article 13 of the Paris Agreement (Decision 18/CMA .1) and the guidance on operationalizing the MPGs as per Decision 5/CMA.3. The project will update and strengthen information database of the national context, analytical and technical capacity of the key national institutions to integrate climate change priorities into national development strategies and relevant sectorial policies. The project will draw on the works and lessons learned under the first, second and third national communications, from the elaboration of the First Biennial Updated Report (BUR1) and subsequent studies carried out in all sectors at national and local levels in relation to climatic changes, as well as from the International Consultation and Analysis (ICA) process to be undertaken following the submission of the First BUR (submitted in December 2023) to the UNFCCC.
