How to incorporate fundable buildings sector actions in NDC's - global practices

02 07 2019
 Webinar   02/07/2019

We are delighted to announce the new GlobalABC Webinar series: How to Incorporate Fundable Buildings Sector Action in NDCs, a series of four webinars: Global, Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The current scope and ambition of buildings sector commitments are insufficient to meet the Paris Agreement goals. Despite 136 countries having acknowledged the need for building sector actions in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), more work is needed to increase the coverage and ambition of these actions.

This webinar series will present practical steps that countries can take to identify opportunities for incorporating ambitious building sector climate actions into NDCs. Based on GlobalABC's NDC Guide, on insights from UNFCCC and the NDC partnership, and through country case studies presented by country representatives, the webinar will outline examples on necessary levels of ambition, stakeholder engagement, governance and monitoring, and verification and reporting required for fundable building sector actions that contribute to achieving the Paris Climate Goals.
