As representative of FIIAPP/EUROCLIMA+ was attending Beatriz García-Pozuelo, who put in context the support that EUROCLIMA+ offers to El Salvado.The Climate Change Unit of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) of El Salvador was represented by Adriana Erazo, who presented the current situation of the country and a summary of the process that has been executed with the objective of implementing the monitoring system in the NDC.

Finally, the consultants Ibon Galarraga from Metroeconómica and Susana González from Factor CO2, explained the details of the system, as well as the good practices and lessons learned that have been rescued from it. Factor's main objective in the project is to support MARN in the establishment of a web-based system for monitoring and reporting progress in the implementation of NDC, in line with the needs of the report of the Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). 

The project includes the participatory definition of indicators and the establishment of the governance of the system, based on an analysis of its institutional capacity and needs for institutional arrangements.
