Published by WRI and UNDP, Enhancing NDCs: A Guide to Strengthening National Climate Plans is designed to help practitioners think through how to structure their country’s enhanced NDCs across three dimensions: strengthening targets to reduce emissions (mitigation), enhancing climate resilience (adaptation) and clearly communicating their actions to build trust and facilitate effective implementation.
This guidance walks countries through a step-by-step process to identify relevant options for enhancing NDCs. The guidance shows how enhanced NDCs can help reduce emissions and advance adaptation action, and presents examples and lessons from countries that are already taking these steps. It also touches on maximizing synergies between climate action with the Sustainable Development Goals, aligning finance with NDC objectives, and communicating NDCs transparently and in line with the Paris Agreement.
A brief guide to the Paris Rulebook — what it is, what it includes and why it is important — as well as an overview of the Rulebook’s various elements, the key decisions made in Poland and the process moving forward.
