In the framework of the 2020 review of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, this guide aims to provide countries with advice on how to enhance ambition and address the six elements of ‘Action for Climate Empowerment’ (ACE) – Education, Training, Public Awareness, Public Access to Information, Public Participation and International Cooperation – in their respective NDCs. In five simple questions and answers, it provides suggestions for elements that can be integrated into the NDCs in order to make ACE an integral part of countries’ climate responses. The guide also shows why ACE is key to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and its greenhouse gas emission targets.
