On November 15 Minister Hakima El Haite of Morocco, Minister Gerd Müller of Germany, Minister Barbara Hendricks of Germany, Climate Champion Laurence Tubiana and others will present at a minister-level event about one of the major outcomes of COP22 -- the launch of a new global partnership dedicated to delivering on the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change and the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals.
Now that the ground-breaking Paris Agreement on climate change has entered into force, how do countries make good on their national commitments to tackle this global threat? Implementing these national plans – known as Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs -- will require countries to develop innovative policies, legislative and institutional frameworks, assess what resources they need and what financial sources they can use to bring their plans to life. They also must overcome economic and market barriers that slow the transfer and uptake of new, cleaner technologies.
Now that 190 countries have committed to new national climate plans – known as Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs -- under the Paris Agreement on climate change, they are looking for ways to convert these commitments into action. The success of the Paris Agreement on climate change depends in large part on whether countries can do this in a coordinated and effective manner.
