ClimateScanner to be presented at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Dubai

Por Secom TCU

The Brazilian Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) is taking part in the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), which began on November 30, and runs until December 12 in Dubai, UAE. The goal is to present and disseminate the ClimateScanner, an initiative led by TCU within the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI). 

The initiative will be presented in panels and meetings in the official booths of Brazil, Finland and the United Arab Emirates, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA). 

"ClimateScanner contributes directly to the UN's 2030 Agenda, becoming a perennial instrument in the fight against deforestation and environmental degradation, in the protection of biodiversity and in the promotion of sustainable development", said Minister Bruno Dantas. 

ClimateScanner is a tool that will enable Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) to assess and monitor government actions to tackle the climate crisis. The project is a global initiative that will collect, consolidate, and disseminate data on government actions related to climate change. 

The design of the methodology was successfully finalized by the ClimateScanner Executive Group, made up of 18 SAIs. Meetings held on November 21 and 22 marked the conclusion of the tool's nine-month development process. At the meetings, the group also discussed the project's next steps: 

  • Preparation of the methodology manual, a document that will contain detailed guidelines on how auditors should apply the tool; 

  • The ClimateScanner Global Call will be held in March 2024 at the United Nations headquarters in New York, gathering SAIs high-level officials to participate in the project by applying the ClimateScanner in 2024; 

  • Capacity building for SAIs that will apply the ClimateScanner tool; 

  • Application of the tool in different countries; 

  • Consolidation and presentation of results. 

The ClimateScanner Executive Group is currently made up of 17 countries and the European Court of Auditors. They are: Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, United Arab Emirates, Slovakia, United States, Philippines, Finland, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Morocco, New Zealand, Kenya, United Kingdom and Thailand.
