Côte d’Ivoire joined the NDC Partnership at its onset in November 2016. In recent years, Côte d’Ivoire has experienced rapid economic growth, largely bound to urban areas, and is at a turning point for its long-term development. The country faces crucial challenges for its energy production and for its agriculture development, a key exporting sector and a significant component of its NDC. The Partnership’s engagement in Côte d’Ivoire builds on existing NDC measures of its members in the country. For example, the European Union is supporting a set of actions for rural and urban electrification and the construction of a solar plant, while the World Bank’s IFC elaborated in early 2018 a private investment roadmap: “Unlocking Private Investment: A Roadmap to achieve Côte d’Ivoire’s 42 percent renewable energy target by 2030”. Engagement with the country started in April 2018 amid active involvement of the Ministry of Environment and its operational arm, the National Climate Change Program (PNCC), and the Ministry of Planning. The process has been supported by UNDP and the French Development Agency (AFD), who contributed to the organization of a National Consultation on NDC Implementation in November 2018. In this line, the Government of Côte d’Ivoire has called for the development of a Partnership Plan to coordinate and oversee NDC implementation efforts. Making use of the NDC’s ambitious targets, the Plan will regroup ongoing measures and support the future ones to meet needs identified throughout consultations. NDC Partnership members supporting ongoing or planned NDC measures in Côte d’Ivoire include AFD, Belgium, Canada, Germany (including GIZ and KfW), NREL, UNDP and UN Environment.
