Strengthen national climate policy implementation: Comparative empirical learning & creating linkage to climate finance

As of: September 2020

Objective and activities

The project assists NDC implementation with empirical evidence and analysis on: effectiveness of NDC related policies in mobilizing finance for achieving climate targets and market transformation; contribution of climate finance to robust institutional and policy framework for NDC implementation. Annual country specific studies responsive to national policy processes are combined with an annual cross country assessment gathering insights and facilitating international learning (CCA). In year one, BR analyses the land-use sectors' policies for mobilising climate investments, ZA and IND the RE transition, IDN the governance of NDC policies and how the private sector can enhance financial flows, and the EU, the energy-efficiency policy-finance nexus in the 2020 framework. The first CCA explores the policy-finance link supporting low-carbon transitions. Workshops address implications for policy processes and are supported by publications, synthesis reports and webinars.
