Advancing from Mitigation Ambition to Action (A2A) - Phase II

As of: October 2021

Following the Paris Agreement, the challenge for many countries will be to translate their mitigation ambition into effective domestic action. At the country level, the project offers analytical support to governments to accelerate the continued devel-opment and implementation of their NDCs, with a focus on sector level action plans, primarily through the articulation of the social, economic and environmental benefits of mitigation. The project will develop analysis and targeted inputs that will support sector-level planning, engage a range of stakeholders, and increase the feasibility of ambitious sector mitigation path-ways in support of NDC implementation. Beyond country support, the project will provide a platform for international dialogue and knowledge exchange on the state of play of NDC implementation, and on key topics and issues related to increasing NDC ambition and accelerating implementation.
