Ambition. Acceleration. Mobilization.
In the frames of UN Climate Action Summit, Monday, 23 September, UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner delivered a speech during Global NDC Outlook Launch & Climate Promise Event.
UN Development Programme considers key to climate success three elements: ambition, acceleration and mobilization.
UNDP launches “Climate Promise” to ensure that as many countries as possible revise and submit enhanced NDCs by 2020. UNDP commits to support 100 countries to accelerate the enhancement of national climate pledges by 2020, building on its climate action portfolio and existing support to NDCs in over 140 countries. UNDP will commit US $25 million to support this effort.
The UN Development Programme and UN Climate Change (UNFCCC) prepared the NDC Global Outlook Report 2019 to inform the Climate Action Summit and it is the most comprehensive review to date of intentions for 2020 and beyond.
