This paper aims to support developing country staff preparing for BTR reporting by providing guidance on the selection and reporting of NDC-related indicators. The paper introduces the concept of indicators, presents potential indicators for frequently used NDC targets for mitigation as well as adaptation and suggests a step-by-step approach for identifying and compiling relevant indicators. Further, this paper provides guidance in filling common tabular formats (CTF) for tracking progress towards NDCs in the annexes by providing examples of filled-in CTF tables, and examples of indicators which Rwanda, Ghana, and Uruguay have selected for tracking actions under their NDC.
