NDC Partnership Thematic Call on LT-LEDS and NDC Alignment, Update, and Enhancement
This Thematic Call is the NDC Partnership’s initiative for countries to align, update and enhance their Long-term Low Emissions Development Strategies (LT-LEDS) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
The NDC Partnership's Thematic Call leverages resources from its members to support countries in preparing robust NDCs for ahead of COP 30 in 2025 and developing resilient LT-LEDS, in line with the recommendations of the Paris Agreement. The Thematic Call allows countries to respond to calls for increased climate action ambition outlined in the Glasgow Climate Pact. The Thematic Call was launched at COP 27 in 2022 and runs until 2025.
LT-LEDS shape mid- and long-term priorities, policies, and investments, enabling governments to balance emissions reduction, economic growth, social justice, development objectives, climate resilience, and a just transition.
NDCs are specific climate action plans and commitments, normally over a five-year timespan, that each participating country submits to outline their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change. These contributions are determined by each country and are intended to reflect their individual circumstances, capabilities, and ambitions.
- Number of countries engaged: 50
- Working on their LT-LEDS: 36
- Working on their NDC: 14
2050 Dedicated support for LT-LEDS request preparation
The NDC Partnership is working with the 2050 Pathways Platform to support countries in preparing their requests on LT-LEDS under the Thematic Call. The secretariat of the 2050 Pathways Platform works with national focal points and the Support Unit to fine-tune the outcomes and activities countries intend to achieve.
