Starting from lessons learned in the formulation and implementation of climate commitments in the OGP, this session will explore three areas for tangible action to improve environmental and climate governance through OGP commitments. Following a short presentation, participants will break out into groups to workshop commitment ideas on climate finance accountability, forest data openness and visualization, and emissions data disclosure to promote city-level climate action. Recommendations produced during an earlier side event co-hosted by WRI and the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture of Georgia will help frame the groups’ discussions.
