The NDC Support Programme (NDC SP) is a global programme housed in the Bureau of Programme and Policy Support (BPPS), Nature, Climate, and Energy (NCE) team under the guidance of the Climate Strategies and Policy team. The NDC SP provides direct financial and technical support to countries on NDC implementation in the context of national development priorities. The programme seeks to enhance the capacities of public- and private-sector actors to deliver on NDC targets through strengthened climate governance; implementation of mitigation actions and mid-century low-emission development strategies; engagement of private sector; and improved investment environments.
The Programme is currently active in 42 countries in a variety of NDC-related work areas including development of NDC implementation plans, strengthening of monitoring systems, and mainstreaming of gender-responsive approaches and is active in five regions. In the Latin American and Caribbean Region programme participants include: Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Paraguay, Peru, and Trinidad and Tobago.
In addition to it’s agreed outputs, the NDC SP served as the catalyst for the 2019 launch of the UNDP Climate Promise – the boldest and most extensive offer to support achievement of the Paris Climate Accord. This Climate Progamme takes the learning and expertise gained through the NDC SP and leverages UNDP’s extensive expertise and capacity around the world covering nowadays up to 118 countries, where 25 countries ain LAC are engaged with UNDP Climate Promise.
