Developing Country Support Needs for the Implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)
Building on its previous country support in the run up to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, UNDP conducted a survey to assess capacity development support needs among developing countries as they prepare for implementation of the Paris Agreement and, in particular, their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The survey addressed countries’ progress on NDC implementation planning, as well as capacity development or technical assistance needs related to NDC implementation.
The survey was distributed to countries that participated in UNDP’s past NDC regional technical dialogues as well as in sub-regional technical training workshops that were organized by UNDP in collaboration with the UNFCCC Secretariat. While originally conducted to inform UNDP’s internal discussions on NDC work, the survey results may prove useful for other organisations and partners providing NDC-related support.
