Unlocking the Potential of INDCs in Developing Countries
With INDCs submitted by more than 140 developing countries, attention turns now to robust, effective implementation. In this event, experts from research institutions, developing countries & others will discuss ways to unlock the potential of INDCs in developing countries.
What are the needed ingredients for successful implementation, and what are lessons learned from preparation of INDCs that are important for their implementation? How can INDC implementation be linked with other sustainable development objectives? The panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities countries face as they transition to putting effective policies in place on the ground.
