The COVID-19 pandemic illuminates the need to build back better and create resilience to future crises, including the impacts of climate change.
The Republic of Korea has an opportunity to effectively address the COVID-19 crisis, while also becoming a climate leader.
Since the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change, adopted in 2015 and signed by 175 countries on Earth Day the following year, global momentum to tackle the climate emergency has been building. But progress hasn't been nearly fast enough.
This webinar highlights cost-effective solutions in forest conservation, restoration and management that can be included in national climate plans for large-scale reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and removal of carbon from the atmosphere.
In this webinar, experts from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, FAO and Oxfam will share their latest research on supporting low-carbon transformation in the agriculture sector through enhancing 2020 NDCs.
Japan's newly announced climate plan is no stronger than the one it submitted five years ago. It fails to grasp the seriousness of climate impacts for Japan or the significant economic opportunities available by pursuing a low-carbon future.
This report is dedicated to supporting countries in implementing their NDCs.
This webinar identifies options to transform the power sector that should be prioritized in the 2020 NDCs.
Marshall Islands, Suriname, Norway and Moldova are the first countries to submit an enhanced "nationally determined contribution," or NDC. The Paris Agreement on climate change calls on countries to submit stronger NDCs every five years, beginning in 2020.
This webinar will focus on options for countries to incorporate targets, policies, and actions on SLCPs into their updated NDCs. It also highlights the many climate, health and development gains that can be achieved by focusing on these highly potent but short-lived gases which include methane, tropospheric ozone, black carbon and HFCs.
Co-hosted by NDC Partnership, Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT), UN Development Programme and World Resources Institute, this webinar highlights three key opportunities to strengthen national climate action in the transport sector.
A new report finds that U.S. states, cities and businesses are already on pace to reduce emissions 25% below 2005 levels by 2030, and could cut emissions further just by scaling up existing actions.
Organized by UK COP26 President-Designate and World Resources Institute, this high-level side event at COP25 in Madrid focused on the growing international momentum around net-zero targets, and how this can drive more ambitious national climate action in line with the science and decreasing costs of clean technologies.
Negotiators at COP25 have an opportunity to get countries' national climate action plans onto the same schedule. A common time frame would improve transparency and coordination, and facilitate greater collective ambition.
Power, transport, agriculture and forests account for more than three-fifths of global emissions. We know how to reduce emissions in these areas, and it's now time to put this knowledge into practice.
This paper discusses steps countries can take to incorporate ambitious, relevant, and tangible transportation solutions into enhanced NDCs for communication to UNFCCC by 2020.
This paper discusses practical options for incorporating more ambitious, explicit, and directed actions in the agriculture sector in enhanced NDCs.
This guidance aims to help countries incorporate more ambitious, relevant, and tangible power solutions into enhanced NDCs for communication to the UNFCCC by 2020.
This guide supplements, as a sector module, the overarching guide, Enhancing NDCs: A Guide to Strengthening National Climate Plans by 2020 (Fransen et al. 2019), and will assist countries in enhancing their NDCs with clearer and more tangible forest and land-use sector contents.
Depending on how the international carbon markets rules are structured, Article 6 of the Paris Agreement could help countries achieve their climate commitments or let them off the hook. Here’s what you need to know.
