Stepping up NDCs
2020 Webinar Series: Enhancing NDCs by Sector
To set the course for a net-zero emissions future, the Paris Agreement established a goal of limiting warming to well below 2 degrees C, and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees C. The initial national commitments that countries put forward are not enough to avoid these temperature thresholds. However, under Paris, countries agreed to prepare and communicate updated nationally determined contributions (NDCs) every five years to reflect progress toward their highest possible ambition.
The 2020 process of enhancing NDCs offers opportunities for policymakers to take stock of their initial commitments and identify meaningful, novel ways to enhance climate action in ways that seemed improbable just five years ago. This webinar series, co-hosted with NDC Partnership, UN Development Programme and other partners, focuses on the most promising and effective solutions to achieving low-carbon transformation at the sectoral level.
