From NDCs to Pathways and Policies: Transformative Climate Action After Paris
As of: August 2019
Objective and activities
The project supports the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in major emerging countries and internationally. It will conduct detailed analyses of the implications of the <2/1.5°C for national development pathways, help develop priority policy packages, and support the in-country development of Long Term Low GHG Emission Development Strategies that are coherent, transparent, credible and in line with domestic development goals. The project will support: i) the preparation of the next round of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by informing the national potentials and conditions for increased ambition and the progress in transforming sectors, financial flows, and technologies; ii) the national stakeholder engagement in implementing countries to ensure the buy-in to the results; and iii) the international dialogue in the run-up to 2020 regarding the potential to develop further policies and proposals to raise ambition.
