NDC Funding and Initiatives Navigator

The NDC Funding and Initiatives Navigator is a searchable database of financial and technical assistance programs available for implementing national climate plans (referred to as Nationally Determined Contributions or NDCs). It is designed to help countries identify available resources for adaptation and mitigation by showing accessible sources of finance, capacity building, technical assistance and other types of support, and also improve coordination by showing countries’ existing bilateral NDC support engagements. The database is regularly updated as more data is made available. Note that traditional development funding, which can be an important source of finance for climate action, is not included in this database​​​​​​​.
