Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) are the cornerstone of the Paris Agreement, and aim to limit the increase in global average temperature, to below 2°C, and preferably below 1.5°C. Building on the Paris Agreement, Parties are now turning their intentions into concrete contributions. As countries move beyond simple expressions of intent, there are potential complexities and intricacies in the implementation of nationally determined contributions, for which facilitation and coordination will be crucial in Africa. Under the ClimDev-Africa Programme, it is crucial for the African Climate Policy Centre to continue to play the important role of supporting African countries with their nationally determined contributions just like it did for intended nationally determined contributions. Some of the objectives are to promote synergistic implementation of nationally determined contributions across sectors, countries and trans-boundary systems through joint planning and implementation and the employment of regional approaches. To harmonize technical approaches in a cost-effective way for implementation, monitoring, learning and facilitating of information-sharing, in addition to providing regular updates on Africa’s progress regarding nationally determined contributions.
