The document “Preparing for the ICA Process: Required efforts and capacities needed” aims to guide non-Annex I Parties in preparing for the International Consultation and Analysis (ICA) process under the UNFCCC, and what efforts and capacities might be required to this end.
The paper draws upon experiences from the GIZ Information Matters (IM) project. The paper first describes the ICA process in detail, taking into account experience with implementation of the ICA process available so far. It then considers how countries can get ready to participate in the ICA process by identifying necessary preparation steps and related capacity needs. This paper does not constitute any documentation under the UNFCCC nor is it endorsed by the UNFCCC.
