The joint project “Building circularity into NDCs” is coordinated by UNEP/One Planet Network Secretariat, UNDP and UNFCCC secretariat. The project aims to support countries to assess, prioritize, integrate, and implement circular economy interventions in their updated NDCs to enhance ambition and accelerate implementation, while supporting a just and inclusive transition. This includes the development of a digital toolbox and this user guide, national piloting of the toolbox in three countries under UNDP’s ClimatePromise, and the organization of regional capacity building workshops throughout 2023. These combined activities also aim to help accelerate efforts on net-zero commitments and Long-Term Low-Emission Development Strategies (LT-LEDS) through circular economy.
