September 8, 2022.- The SGT-MRV of the Pacific Alliance shares the Executive Report of its fourth face-to-face meeting held in Bogotá the first week of August, which included delegates from Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, as well as a representative from Ecuador as a guest country.

The Report gives an account of the beginning of the second stage of development of the SGT-MRV Coordination Framework, thanks to the technical and financial support of Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Gold Standard as implementing agency. It also notes that the Bogotá meeting:

  • Served as a meeting space between the focal points and delegates from the countries, who met for the first time officially since 2019.

  • Gold Standard was formally presented as an implementing partner of the second phase of the SGT-MRV.

  • A balance of the first stage and the main milestones generated from the implementation of the Coordination Framework (2018-2021) was made.

  • The countries disclosed the status of their MRV systems.

  • Activities and products of the new Coordination Framework for the short, medium and long term were updated and agreed upon, and

  • A common vision to 2026 was defined for the SGT-MRV: In 2026 the countries of the Pacific Alliance will have operational and sustainable MRV systems, which will be a reference for other regions and an input for South-South cooperation.

Likewise, three priority objectives were established to be achieved in 2026:

  1. Consolidate the technical capacities in the countries to lead the monitoring and reporting of climate mitigation, adaptation and financing.

  2. Move towards standards and protocols for monitoring and reporting policies and actions for climate mitigation, adaptation and financing, harmonized among the countries of the Pacific Alliance.

  3. Have in the countries of the Pacific Alliance with MRV systems implemented and harmonized with the next Biennial Transparency Reports (BTR).
