18 September 2014, OECD, Paris, France
The first two meetings of the Joint Task Team on the Rio Markers were held in March and June 2014.
Please see the Main Points of Discussion of the third experts' meeting of the Joint ENVIRONET-WP-STAT Task Team.
This mini-meeting also provided an update on progress against the Task Team work programme, and discuss a proposal for the future work programme and extension of the Task Team mandate into 2015.
The stock-take of members’ reporting practices and the first Task Team meeting identified a number of improvements to be taken forward by members in their application of the Rio markers and in reporting to the OECD DAC CRS. Undertaking some of these improvements is a continuous task and the ease of implementing these may vary by member based on differences in reporting approaches and institutional structures.
This session reviewed progress by members in reporting to the OECD DAC on the Rio and environment markers, including reviewing the status of 2013 flows reporting against the official deadline of 15 July (noting that the Secretariat has committed to undertake a special reporting exercise to present 2013 data for the UNFCCC COP in December 2014 based on data reported by September).
Members reported on progress and shared experiences and lessons learned. There was also a discussion on a draft narrative to accompany the presentation of disbursement data.
This session took stock of members’ comments on the initial proposal for improvements to the Rio markers’ eligibility criteria, examples and guidance circulated at the Second Task Team meeting in June (Climate Change Adaptation marker, and Climate Change Mitigation marker).
On that basis, participants were invited to consider next steps for developing a recommendation for changes to the statistical reporting directives to submit to the WP-STAT and DAC thereafter.
