The Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industry (MECTHI) is being supported by several partners including the United Nations Environment Programme – Technical University of Denmark Partnership (UNEP DTU Partnership) and  Italian National Institute for Environmental Protection and Research (ISPRA) to increase the country’s technical capacity for the implementation of the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement as well as related policy impact analysis using ICAT Guidelines. The UNEP DTU Partnership support is being channeled through the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) Project in Zimbabwe. The support comes at a time when the country is in the process of updating its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to cover more economic sectors beyond energy and agriculture and is expected to inform this process and vice versa.

The ICAT global programmes is being implemented in more than forty countries and aims to integrate guidance, capacity building and knowledge sharing in the use of a common framework to assess the impacts of their policies and actions and report progress, fostering greater transparency, effectiveness and ambition. The Initiative seeks to improve the availability and quality of data and enable countries to promote efficient, cost-effective policies. It provides a platform for countries to share lessons learned and build mutual confidence in their climate actions.
