Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Implementation of the Paris Agreement

21 members

UNDP, UNEP, UDP, and the WRI, in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat, are currently developing joint guidance to be used by countries as they prepare for NDC implementation.

We are pleased to have your participation in this online discussion (e-discussion) to exchange national experiences on the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and to support the development of this practical guidance document on NDC implementation. The guidance is being developed as part of the discussions under the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building Programme and the NDC Regional Technical Dialogues. The e-discussion will take part in 6 phases from 9 November to March 2017.

The purpose of this e-discussion is to engage stakeholders, practitioners, experts and policy-makers across the globe in a dialogue to capture experiences on NDC implementation and gather feedback to guide the development of the forthcoming guidance. This guidance builds on our previous document, Designing and Preparing Intended Nationally Determined Contributions, and is meant to serve as a practical tool to help governments develop comprehensive and actionable roadmaps for NDC implementation. Consulting with a broad group of stakeholders and incorporating feedback from countries will help us to develop comprehensive guidance that is based on real-world national experiences. We would like to acknowledge the contribution of the EU, Germany, Japan, Norway and Australia in the context of the guidance document. Finally, we thank you in advance for your contributions and collaboration
