- NDC Partnership supports developing countries to align long-term development with climate action
SHARM EL SHEIKH, Egypt, Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As world leaders meet this week in Sharm El Sheikh for COP27, developing countries renew their calls to create sustainable development pathways to advance action urgent climate.
To catalyze urgent action, the NDC Partnership today launched its Issue Call to support developing country members across two interconnected fronts: preparing, updating and refining Long-Term Low Emission Development Strategies (LT-LEDS) , and improve the quality and increase the ambition of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
LT-LEDS are powerful policy instruments for countries to identify and prioritize systemic changes, offering an opportunity for countries to develop robust long-term strategies that connect with NDC processes and link economic development with climate action. .
To execute these transitions, countries must identify financing needs, understand and assess the implications of related policies and reforms, and develop enabling frameworks to mobilize investment. In response to the specific needs of countries, the NDC Partnership will offer comprehensive and tailored support with the aim of providing clear, long-term policy direction designed to drive sustainable development.
The NDC Partnership is now putting this comprehensive approach into practice by partnering with the UNFCCC in a trial with three countries, Jordan, Saint Vincent and Cambodia, to help develop their LT-LEDS in alignment with the NDCs and an emphasis on the Transparency Framework. .
Jordan's Environment Minister, His Excellency Dr. Al-Kharabsheh Saleh, explained: "We are delighted to be part of the joint NDC Partnership-UNFCCC project on the LT-LEDS and NDC thematic call. We look forward to accelerating our climate action highlighting the links between our commitment to transparency, NDC implementation and our long-term planning for sustainable development."
NDC Partnership Global Director Pablo Vieira commented: "Through our thematic call, the NDC Partnership is inviting developing countries to apply to facilitate the development of LT-LEDS. LT-LEDS are powerful policy mechanisms that effectively link the future development of countries with the climate, guiding national development towards resilience and net-zero emissions by or around the year 2050. Countries, through their updated NDCs, have shown a vital increase in their ambition and commitment to climate action By aligning their NDCs with long-term strategies, countries can integrate climate action into their political direction, creating a framework to attract and mobilize critical climate finance."
