  23. 23. • We are a global coalition of countries and institutions collaborating to drive transformational climate action while enhancing sustainable development THE NDC PARTNERSHIP – WHO WE ARE 24
  24. 24. OVERVIEW OF THE CAEP 25
  25. 25. OVERVIEW OF THE CAEP • The CAEP gives clear and coherent signals that resources will be made available for developing countries that wish to raise the level of ambition in their updated NDCs. • It aims to assist countries to: • Enhance NDCs, including by raising ambition, as part of the Paris Agreement’s NDC update process, allowing countries to submit updated NDCs to the UNFCCC by 2020 • Targeted, Fast-Track Support to Update and Enhance NDCs 26
  26. 26. HOW IT DELIVERS • All members in the NDC Partnership are encouraged to commit support to requesting developing member countries. • Support will be delivered through: • Existing and new resources and expertise from NDC Partnership members; • A dedicated Technical Assistance Fund. • The Technical Assistance Fund is a pooled funding mechanism with contributions from multiple development partners which will allocate resources to institutional and associate members with the required expertise but without available resources to respond to requests. • Leverages Member Resources and a New Technical Assistance Fund 27
  27. 27. SUMMARY OF CAEP ROUND 1 28
  28. 28. COUNTRIES ARE SHOWING LEADERSHIP • 50 COUNTRIES submitted proposals to raise ambition and enhance their NDCs and WILL RECEIVE SUPPORT from CAEP. • Countries requested support for almost 900 INDIVIDUAL ACTIVITIES • IN 80% OF THESE CASES, countries have endorsement from Ministries of Finance, and sectoral ministries are supporting in the majority of cases 29 Through CAEP, countries are empowered to: • Submit more ambitious NDCs in 2020 • Unlock higher ambition in both mitigation and adaptation • Follow an integrated approach involving all relevant parts of government and society • Link climate action and sustainable development • Incorporate gender-responsive climate action
  29. 29. 35+ PARTNERS ARE STEPPING UP • More than 35 partners have stepped up by providing funding and technical assistance to countries in their efforts to enhance their NDCs and raise ambition  31 member institutions and developed countries are committing to support countries’ requests  6 developed countries are providing funding to the Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) 30 Unique Impact of CAEP: • Bringing together member countries and partners, creating a collective impact through bold, collaborative efforts • Through CAEP, members provide support to countries with their resources and programs, boosted with support from a new Technical Assistance Fund
  30. 30. COUNTRIES ARE RAMPING UP AMBITION WITH CAEP – Updating targets. Governments are carrying out fuller economic and technical analysis to enable them to set bolder targets with confidence. – Broadening scope by adding new sectors and responsibilities. Many NDCs included targets for just a few well-understood sectors. Countries are now looking for mitigation and adaptation opportunities in other sectors and activities. – Using improved data and MRV systems. Governments are more ready to make informed decisions and take more effective action where they can measure and track progress. – Engaging ministries in a whole-of-government approach. Involving all the relevant ministries and stakeholders for a whole-of-society approach takes time and resources but is vital to giving all a stake in successful implementation. – Embedding the NDC in long-term strategies and plans. And using long term visions from sectoral plans or long-term climate scenarios in preparing new, more ambitious NDCs. • With the support provided under CAEP, countries are enhancing their NDCs and increasing ambition by: 31
