Practitioners’ Workshop on Intended Nationally Determined Mitigation Contributions
WRI hosted a two-day Practitioners’ Workshop on Intended Nationally Determined Mitigation Contributions in September 2014 in partnership with the Climate Action Tracker and the Open Climate Network. Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) bring together elements of national and international decision-making on climate change, such as issues pertaining to equity and effort-sharing, national considerations, transparency, and alignment with global temperature goals.
The workshop convened more than 40 representatives from the research and analytical community and served as a forum to:
familiarize practitioners with one another’s analytical work to inform the design of major economies’ mitigation contributions, and to facilitate peer-to-peer feedback on the same
advance a common understanding of methodological approaches for evaluating mitigation contributions at the country level
identify opportunities for coordination and collaboration on methodologies and analysis related to mitigation contributions
