Leading on climate action
UNDP is already a major supporter of climate action in more than 140 countries. We are currently engaged in over 700 climate change mitigation and adaptation projects globally, with a total portfolio of over US$3 billion in grant finance, directly contributing to meeting countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) targets. We are also working on NDC planning and implementation in 31 countries, which will increase significantly over the coming year.
This extensive experience, and UNDP’s global network of development experts, makes us well placed to convene the range of relevant actors and stakeholders, from public and private sectors, in order to galvanize stakeholders to work together and meet the Paris goals.
The multi-faceted nature of climate change, and the myriad impacts it has, means many of UNDP’s work streams are supporting climate action, whether it is safeguarding our forests and other natural landscapes that act as carbon sinks, or helping vulnerable communities build resilient livelihoods, we are paving the way towards a carbon-neutral future.
