Fostering Success Factors for NDC Implementation - Lessons from the Good Practice Database

March 12, 2019

This input aims to inform the debate on how to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement through a successful implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The analysis of good mitigation, adaptation and cross-cutting country practices has revealed that there exist certain factors that facilitate the successful materialisation of such practices. Key factors across country contexts for the realisation of ambitious climate policies are “political buy-in”, “stakeholder engagement” and “scientific analyses and technical support”. Going forward in NDC implementation, it seems worthwhile to devote more attention to them while acknowledging country conditions and priorities. A particularly important issue in this context is how such factors can be influenced and supported in order to assist NDC implementation and raise ambition in the medium-to long-term.
