Action – facilitating implementation of climate-resilient and low-carbon
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
Many developing countries have asked the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) for support in implementing their NDCs . The project helps the partner countries to transform their NDCs into strategies and measures that are ready for financing and implementation. Depending on the requirements of the countries, the focus is on measures to reduce emissions and/or to adapt to the consequences of climate change. These measures may include, for example, involving relevant stakeholders from the public, private and financial sectors, strengthening the institutions responsible for NDC implementation or transferring the NDCs to a portfolio of policies and programmes for two sectors to be selected by the countries. Science-based, policy-relevant information is provided through the Emission Gap Report 2019, strengthening the ambition to achieve NDC implementation. The project also creates general guidelines and e-learning elements that can be used in other countries.
State of implementation/results
- Presentation of the project in September 2019 at Asia-Pacific Climate Week at an event on NDC financing. --- The scoping missions have been carried out in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Jordan, Mongolia, Uganda, and Viet Nam. This engagement with ministries, local financial institutions, development partners, research centres, and other stakeholders aims to provide an accurate assessment to determine in which areas NDC Action can best contribute.
- Close cooperation with the NDC-Partnership to support NDC revision in Chile, Morocco, and Argentina through the Climate Action Enhancement Package.
