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. The guidance will be informed by real-world country examples and a public draft will be available for comment by countries in early 2017. In order to seek early feedback on the guidance, we have developed a draft outline, available here. We kindly request that you read the outline and respond to the questions below. Your feedback is instrumental in ensuring that the guidance is as practical as possible and grounded in national experiences.
1) Country Experiences
How has the Paris Agreement and the (I)NDC process catalyzed progress on climate action in your country? What are the key areas in which your country will need support or guidance as you prepare for NDC implementation?
2) Scope of the Outline:
Does the draft outline for the NDC implementation guidance reflect the key areas identified above? What other thematic areas (if any) would you suggest including to make the guidance as practical as possible for countries in the process of preparing for NDC implementation?
2) Additional Suggestions:
Based on your professional experience (and experience in using Designing and Preparing INDCs, if applicable), what suggestions would you have for ensuring that the NDC implementation guidance is concrete yet applicable to a wide spectrum of countries, stakeholders, and types of NDCs?
