Climate action enhancement package (CAEP)
The Climate Action Enhancement Package (abbreviated CAEP, pronounced "cap") is a new offering of the NDC Partnership designed to deliver targeted, fast-track support to countries to enhance the quality, increase the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions (or NDCs).
Under the Paris Agreement, countries revise their NDCs every five years to cut greenhouse gas emissions to limit Earth's temperature rise and implement solutions to adapt to the effects of climate change. The updating of NDCs presents countries with significant opportunities to align their climate and development agendas to promote sustainable growth, but also presents challenges in reinventing policies and operations and mobilizing enough investment.
Since its launch in July 2019, two rounds of CAEP support and a call for supplemental requests have been administered, and requests for support received from 65 member countries. Full details on CAEP support can be found here.
