Today, the NDC Partnership released a beta version of the NDC Toolbox Navigator. This online resource provides a comprehensive toolbox for the different stages of NDC implementation, and will also help users navigate over 20 existing online tool platforms with related resources.

To date, 191 countries have submitted national climate commitments, or Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), to the United Nations under the Paris Agreement on climate change. The challenge nations now face is turning their emissions reduction and climate adaptation goals into action and results, while also aligning climate efforts with national sustainable development priorities.

Government officials and country-level stakeholders need a wide array of tools and methods to transition from setting NDC targets to producing climate mitigation and adaptation results. Many analytical tools and technical resources are already available, and now, officials and implementers will be able to find them in one centralized location.

The Toolbox Navigator was developed collaboratively through a working group of the NDC Partnership Support Unit, including World Resources Institute, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the UNFCCC Secretariat, as well as USAID, the Government of Morocco COP22 Presidency, and the Low Emissions Development Strategies Global Partnership. It is the result of an extensive outreach process between the NDC Partnership and a wide array of partners.

The Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA) is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Environment Ministry (BMUB) and advises the  NDC Partnership.
