Regional Dialogue for Nationally Determined Contributions for Africa
March 18, 2019 - March 19, 2019
This text is taken from the NDC partnership.
“CONCEPT AND OBJECTIVES
With the adoption of the Paris Agreement Work Programme and the conclusion of the Talanoa Dialogue at COP-24 in December 2018, the “rule-book” of the Paris Agreement has been agreed. Governments and non-Party stakeholders are now shifting gears toward implementing ambitious climate action for a low-GHG and climate-resilient future, in line with the global temperature goals of the Paris Agreement and countries’ individual Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Countries are also in the process of preparing second-round NDCs with increased coverage, clarity, and ambition – as well as long-term, low-GHG emission development strategies – ahead of the 2020 deadline. In this context, the Regional Dialogue on Nationally Determined Contributions for Africa will seek to accomplish the following objectives:
1. Introduce and discuss the outcomes of COP-24, including those outcomes from the Paris Agreement Work Programme and the Talanoa Dialogue that are relevant for the preparation of future NDCs and implementation of ambitious climate action;
2. Jointly consider the gap to meet the long-term goal and the need and avenues for raising national, regional, and global ambition;
3. Exchange experiences and lessons learned to address challenges relating to NDC preparation, implementation, and finance; and
4. Discuss synergistic implementation of NDCs, national development plans, and the Sustainable Development Goals.”
