This paper aims to provide assistance to countries in their selection of National Determined Contribution (NDC)-related indicators for their first Biennial Transparency Reports (BTRs). It presents a range of potential indicators, specifically tailored to commonly employed NDC targets encompassing both mitigation and adaptation efforts. With a practical stance, the paper offers a step-by-step approach for identifying and compiling indicators that align with the specific needs of the country, with the aim of increasing both the effectiveness and ambition of climate targets.
