Ocean-based climate action can play an important role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) are one of the main vehicles under the Paris Agreement for countries to communicate their national climate strategies. The purpose of this technical note is to lay out the methodology for assessing the extent to which ocean-based measures for climate action are represented in new and updated NDCs from island and coastal countries.
