Ricardo launches Paris NDC implementation guide

Logo - Ricardo Energy and Environment'

Ricardo Energy & Environment and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network have launched a guide to support countries with the implementation of their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) - the intended climate actions under the Paris Agreement.

The guide provides national and local-level policy makers, as well as funders responsible for NDCs, with information and guidance on the steps necessary to implement their climate commitments. The document framework for the implementation of NDCs is broken down into five pillars: governance, mitigation, adaptation, finance and monitoring, reporting and verification.

The report was developed following the requests of several developing countries expressing a need for practical guidance on tackling the NDCs and accounts for the varying stages of climate change policy and development each country is at.

Ricardo Energy & Environment manager of international climate change policy, Emelia Holdaway, commented: “NDC implementation is achievable when countries break it down into discrete, achievable goals. I hope this guide will be a useful tool on the journey towards decarbonisation and climate resilience.”
