CARISMA - TRANSrisk joint side-event at SB-48, 8 May 2018

During the Bonn Climate Conference of May 2018, CARISMA and TRANSrisk co-organised the side-event “Strengthening institutional capabilities to support implementation of ambitious NDCs”. Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are the plans that countries shall prepare, communicate and maintain in order to contribute in the achievement of the Paris Agreement goal which is to limit the global mean temperature increase to well below 2oC above pre-industrial levels and aim for 1.5oC. While NDCs are national climate plans, there is scope for country collaboration on design and implementation of NDCs. Moreover, successful design and communication of an NDC does not mean that implementation will be always successful due to capacity limitations or other obstacles for that. Thus this side-event presented examples of creating synergies in the areas of policy transfer, technology transfer and capacity building for stronger institutional capabilities for NDCs, both during the design and implementation stages.

The event's programme is the following:
