Thematic Expert Group

The NDC Partnership has established a Thematic Expert Group to provide thematic backstopping and supplement the Economic Advisory Initiative. This group provides on-demand technical advice, research, and/or guidance on specific sectors or themes related to climate adaptation and mitigation incorporated in recovery responses. This support helps align integration of economic recovery with a country’s NDC and other national climate change planning documents, including low-emission development strategies (LEDS) and/or long-term strategies (LTS). This advice is available, at no cost, to all developing country members of the NDC Partnership.
