Global Workshop on NDCs in Brussels, Belgium

JUNE 13 - 14, 2016 | Brussels, Belgium



The UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme hosted the first Global Workshop of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) 13-14 June 2016 in Brussels, Belgium. Over 110 participants attended, representing over 40 countries, academia, NGOs and the Private Sector. The workshop served as an opportunity to take-stock of NDC-related provisions of the Paris Agreement, discuss technical and institutional issues related to implementation, and enter into a rich exchange of practical experiences from country teams.



  • Day 1 focused on moving from INDCs to NDCs, next steps in preparing for implementation, building awareness, strengthening institutions, and engaging stakeholders, before delving into the thematic topic of mitigation. Here you can access the Workshop Objectives/Setting the Scene presentation while session presentations can be found below.

  • Day 2 focused on the thematic topic of adaptation, NDCs as a driver for sustainable development and monitoring of progress toward NDC goals.
