The conference is organized by GIZ and UNDP for the IKI Support Cluster and the LEDS Global Partnership in collaboration with the NDC Partnership.

Organized by

The Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA) of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) works at the interface between German international climate policy and development cooperation. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB), the project provides platforms and support for implementing global NDC and transparency initiatives in three components: the IKI NDC Support Cluster, the NDC Partnership, and the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV.

NDC Assist – Support Project to the NDC Partnership

On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), NDC Assist supports public and private stakeholders in selected partner countries with the implementation of their NDCs in the context of the NDC Partnership. The BMZ-funded project further facilitates dialogue between relevant stakeholders at the national, regional and global level in order to develop innovative solutions and good practices that can help achieve ambitious climate and sustainable development targets as fast and effectively as possible.

The Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) was founded in 2011 to facilitate peer learning, technical cooperation, and information exchange to enhance the formation and implementation of LEDS, especially in developing countries and regions.

The Partnership engages leaders from over 300 institutions across government agencies, technical institutes, international agencies, and NGOs.  It operates through active regional platforms in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and a newly launched platform in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, along with six technical global working groups, and a global secretariat provided through the United States National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).  LEDS GP is supported by the US State Department and US Agency for International Development (USAID), the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS), the European Commission, the Inter-American Development Bank, the German Government, the World Bank, and a range of other donors. The Partnership has an innovative devolved and distributed leadership structure that places national needs at its heart.

UNDP’s work on climate change spans more than 140 countries and USD $2.8 billion in investments in climate change adaptation and mitigation measures since 2008. Following the adoption of the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030, the need for systematic support on the implementation of countries’ climate plans in the context of their development priorities has emerged. UNDP is therefore expanding its existing support through the Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme and other projects to help countries move to a zero carbon pathway.  The programme offers technical and financial support for NDC implementation planning, specifically in high-level leadership, integrated climate governance, policies and actions, climate finance, and public-private collaboration. Building on previous relationships with its partners, the Programme is part of the NDC Partnership and the IKI NDC Support Cluster to support improved coordination and knowledge sharing. The Programme is supported by the European Union, Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

In collaboration with the
