UNFCCC 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) planned for November 2021 in Glasgow is the most important meeting since CoP21 when Paris Agreement was adopted.
In this Decade of Action, it is expected from all countries to turn their climate ambitions into immediate actions, to forge climate-smart partnerships in achieving the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 C degrees above pre-industrial levels.
With adoption of the Climate Change Law, the Republic of Serbia made important step towards low-carbon development, setting a clear trace for the transformation of its economy. New, revised and more ambitious NDC is setting the roadmap for decarbonization till 2030 and beyond.
UNDP’s Climate Promise is the world’s largest offer of support for countries to enhance their pledges (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. In collaboration with over 35 partners globally, UNDP is helping 118 countries to be bolder in reducing emissions, increasing resilience, and protecting nature.
UNDP’s Climate Promise is offering five service lines for NDC enhancement including: (i) building political will and societal ownership at national and sub-national levels; (ii) reviewing, aligning, and updating existing targets, policies and measures; (iii) incorporating new sectors and/or greenhouse gases; (iv) assessing costs and investment opportunities; and (v) monitoring progress and strengthening transparency.
