Expert Perspectives

Governments and other stakeholders must take into account many considerations as they develop strategies to implement their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change. Advancing climate action and sustainable development while reaching their emission reduction and resilience goals requires action plans for key sectors, greater coordination across sectors, and consistent funding to put national plans in place.

The NDC Partnership solicited perspectives from leading subject matter experts from around the globe to offer insights on how to address these diverse issues. The expert perspectives listed below explore key issues confronting countries as they move forward with NDC implementation, and are showcased here. They do not represent the views of the NDC Partnership Support Unit, its member countries, or organizations. Additional expert perspectives will be added over time.
