How Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions can be effectively used as building blocks for the implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement
This report gathers key messages from the Anglophone African Regional Workshop on "Converting (I)NDCs into action: the role of NAMAs in NDC implementation", which tool place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 2-4 May 2016.
Summary report of the first phase of the project
Information Matters has now published the Summary report of the first phase of the project highlighting the country results, lessons learned and main achievements.
Transformational Change Taxonomy
The aim of this project is to improve understanding of transformational change (TC) in order to monitor, report and verify (MRV) the contribution of NAMAs to low carbon development that limits global warming to well below 2°C.
Challenges and lessons learned in the preparation of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)
This document presents a synthesis of the challenges and lessons learned from the preparation process of intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs) by Parties to the UNFCCC in the run up to Paris. The challenges and lessons learned from the INDC preparation process hold great relevance for the next steps regarding the implementation and further development of countries’ nationally determined contributions (NDCs), in terms of both clarity and ambition.
After Paris: What is next for Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)?
This paper outlines what the Paris Agreement means for Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and what needs to happen at the country level now and in the longer term to implement the Agreement.
Factsheet Information Matters
Conditionality of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)
This briefing paper by NewClimate Institute concisely presents the key information and aspects on the conditionality of countries‘ mitigation contributions in their INDCs. It gives an overview of the variety of forms of conditional contributions and of the types of conditions, which closely reflect some of the important issues discussed at the international policy level. In addition, the paper examines the implications of conditionality for the effort by the international community to address climate change collectively, with particular focus on climate change mitigation ambition levels, procedural and legal implications, as well as the international finance and support streams.
Leading on Transparency – a Coalition of MRV Leading Countries
This knowledge product aims at demonstrating that building a coalition of countries to lead the way in Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) can be an effective way of ensuring countries rise above the floor of minimum requirements for transparency in their climate actions.
