A secretariat will operate in a supporting role for the Coalition, and organize events at UNFCCC subsidiary body meetings to support the Coalition’s expert input to the development and function of the UNFCCC’s Paris Committee on Capacity Building (PCCB) and the Capacity Building Initiative on Transparency (CBIT) operated by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF).

The GHG Management Institute is providing secretariat support for the Phase 1 startup of the Coalition.

The members of the Coalition will then collectively decide on the most appropriate institutional framework for how the Coalition operates, in terms of membership (individuals or organizations), a secretariat, operating principles and finances.  A Memorandum of Understanding will be co-developed.

We are seeking financial support for the functioning of the secretariat of the Coalition on Paris Agreement Capacity Building as we move into Phase 2 and beyond.
