This guide guides countries step by step through a process to identify relevant options for improving NDCs. The guide shows how improving NNCs can help reduce emissions and promote adaptation measures and presents examples and lessons learned from countries that have already taken these measures. It is also about maximising synergies between climate change measures and the Sustainable Development Goals, directing funding towards NDC objectives and communicating NDCs in a transparent manner and in line with the Paris Agreement. The Marshall Islands, Suriname, Norway and Moldova are the first countries to submit an enhanced “national contribution” (NDC). The Paris Agreement on climate change invites countries to submit more powerful NDCs every five years from 2020 on. Enhancing NDCs: A Guide to Strengthening National Climate Plan, published by WRI and UNDP, aims to help practitioners think about how to structure their country`s improved NDCs in three dimensions: strengthening emission reduction (reduction) targets, improving climate resilience (adaptation), and clearly communicating their actions to build trust and facilitate their effective implementation. enhancing-ndcs-2020-achieving-goals-paris-agreement.pdf If China`s CO2 non-emissions were a country, they would be the 7th largest global emitter of total greenhouse gas emissions. Here`s how China can clean them up. As countries reflect on how to boost climate ambitions in managing the coronavirus pandemic, Chile is leading by example with a New National Climate Commitment (NDC). While virtually all countries have national climate plans, in many cases the impact they will have on emissions is unclear. If you prefer to download the publication directly, click here.
Fewer than a dozen national climate plans contain measures to reduce food loss and waste. This is a problem – if food loss and waste were a country in its own right, it would be the third largest emitter in the world. .
