The Africa NDC Dialogue is part of the fourth round of Regional NDC Dialogues, which have been convened to advance the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change since 2015. This Regional Dialogue on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for Africa is supported by the governments of Japan, Norway and the European Union, and is co-organized by the UNDP, the UNFCCC Secretariat, and the Government of Morocco in collaboration with GIZ and the NDC Partnership.
The meeting will seek to: update participants on the planning status of NDC implementation, share experiences, best practices, and opportunities and associated challenges in the region; clarify capacity building gaps and needs on NDC implementation with a focus on Africa and provide recommendations on support priorities to address such gaps; discuss NDC implementation at the local authority level, considering policies and actions, and incentives; address climate finance needs for NDC implementation and strengthen the role of the private sector in the implementation of NDCs; and discuss entry points to integrate gender equality and women's empowerment into NDC implementation and planning.
