  1. 1. BUILDING THE UNFCCC BUDGET 2018-19
  2. 2. 2 Our common challenge, our common vision  Need to act on climate change to ensure sustainable development and human well being  Deep synergy: Paris Agreement ↔SDGs  Business as usual will not deliver. Profound structural transformation needed  Rapid climate action and implementation of the Paris Agreement of the essence  Secretariat: enabling implementation, not executing agency
  3. 3. A new era, a new way of working  Secretariat to realign work to better support Parties and non-Party actors in required transformation  New clustering of work. Objectives:  Enhance coordination and effective use of secretariat capacity and skill sets  Be more agile in responding to Parties’ needs  Be more cost-efficient  Need to identify areas of work where efforts could be minimized or streamlined to prioritize Paris Agreement 3
  4. 4. Three clusters for enhanced implementation and climate action 4 Intergovern- mental affairs Secretariat operations and systems Implementation and climate action Connecting governments, UN system, business, investors, sub- nationals Means of implement- ation Adaptation Transparency framework NDCs Promoting action ICT systems Efficient adminSkilled staff Monitoring results Legal advice Negotiation support Organizing conferences
  5. 5. Funding challenges 5  Secretariat continues efforts to absorb work and increase cost efficiency  Work suffering from lack of predictable resources: Flat core budget + significant decline in voluntary funding  Need to ensure key areas of work in support of implementation and climate action sufficiently resourced 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 Received 27,189,069 25,182,872 24,103,316 17,709,584 11,708,562 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 USD Millions
  6. 6. Key focus areas of support 2018-2019  Advance Paris Agreement rule book and related institutions, bodies and mechanisms  Procedural, institutional and technical support to COP, CMP, CMA, APA, SBI, SBSTA and a dozen constituted bodies and expert groups  Facilitate implementation of NDCs and NAPs at national level  Technical analysis, guidance and support related to Party GHG data, NDC registry, registry of adaptation efforts, transparency framework and means of implementation  Catalyse engagement of actors at national and international levels  Support not only to Parties but non-Party actors, highlighting achievements and best practices and bringing actors together 6
  7. 7. Key focus areas of support 2018-2019 Specific domains of secretariat support requiring predictable funding:  Adaptation ► Technical advice, guidance and support to work of AC, LEG and WIM  Capacity-Building ► Support to Paris Committee  Transparency framework ► Implementation of analysis and reviews processes;  NDCs ► Management of NDC registry and facilitation of partnerships for action  Finance ► Tracking and transparency of support; support to SCF; preparation of BA and financial flows  Climate action ► Managing NAZCA; supporting champions; promoting climate action; engaging UN system, business, investors and sub-nationals  Communications ►Enhancing efforts to communicate more clearly on the benefits of climate action  Information platforms ► unfccc.int as information hub for climate action; upgrading IT platforms; modernizing conference systems 7
  8. 8. Building the new budget  One integrated budget for Convention and Paris Agreement  One scale of assessment for Convention and Paris Agreement  Adjust budget components (KP vs. Convention/PA)  Ensure more predictable funding (core vs. supplementary)  Two scenarios:  Zero growth as mandated but will not enable secretariat to deliver on mandates as it should  Budget increase reflecting post-Paris reality 8
  9. 9. Your input needed  Agree with overall vision: priority on implementation and climate action?  Specific focus domains for 2018-2019?  How to ensure balance of key areas of work?  How to ensure predictability of funding?  What are opportunities for streamlining mandates? 9
