Providing impetus for NDC implementation and updating: 5 new case studies added to the Good Practice Database (GPD)

Galvanising country leaders from around the world to present their plans on to update their NDCs by 2020, the UN Climate Action Summit, which took place on 23 September 2019 in New York, has reiterated the importance and urgency of taking ambitious climate action. In order to help countries drive forward change in this area, an easily searchable and insightful online tool is available. The Good Practice Database (GPD) features good practice case studies from around the globe that showcase how climate actions and polices are being effectively conceived and realised. Between July and October 2019, 5 new case studies have been added to the database as part of a joint initiative of PATPA, the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building Programme and the IKI NDC Support Cluster. Covering a broad range of adaptation and mitigation actions, the cases aim to serve as inspiration for other countries seeking to revise and update their NDCs. 

The GPD is jointly maintained by the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (PATPA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) NDC Support Programme, the IKI NDC Support Cluster, the NDC Partnership and the Low Emissions Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP). Over the course of the next few months, further good practices will be added to the GPD, encompassing topics such as the assessment of private climate finance flows, GHG inventories and vulnerability mapping.
