Organised by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development
in partnership with UN Climate Change
, this SD Talks Special Series on Climate Action
webinar on the topic National Climate Plans (NDCs): Blueprints for a Global Transformation
took place on 7th June 2017.
The Paris Climate Change Agreement set the goals, and now countries must translate them into action. The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) set out what each country plans to do as part of the Paris Agreement to contribute to the international effort to secure a sustainable future for all. This webinar explains how NDCs open up a new universe of economic and cooperation opportunities to realize the mitigation and adaptation plans and increase climate resilience. The webinar features Claudio Forner, team lead on mitigation at UN Climate Change and Koko Warner, manager of the UN Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and risks subprogramme. The discussion was moderated by Simona Costanzo-Sow, Policy Support Team Lead, UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development.
