Advancing from mitigation ambition to action (A2A)
As of: April 2018
Objective and activities
Following the Paris Agreement, the challenge for many countries will be to translate their mitigation ambition into effective domestic action. The project offers analytical support to accelerate the continued development and implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), primarily through the articulation of the social, economic, and environmental benefits of mitigation. The project will build on existing plans to develop a sector implementation roadmap that will support sector-level planning, engage a range of stakeholders, and increase the feasibility of ambitious sector mitigation pathways 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.
