The NDC Partnership Supports Developing Countries to Align Long-term Development With Climate Action
SHARM EL SHEIKH, Egypt, Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

As global leaders gather this week in Sharm El Sheikh for COP27, developing 
countries renew their calls for creating sustainable development pathways to 
advance urgent climate action.

To catalyse urgent action, the NDC Partnership has today launched its Thematic 
Call to support developing country members through two interconnected fronts: 
preparing, updating and refining Long-term Low Emissions Development Strategies 
(LT-LEDS), and enhancing the quality and increasing the ambition of their 
Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

LT-LEDS are powerful policy instruments for countries to identify and 
prioritize systemic changes, providing an opportunity for countries to develop 
robust long-term strategies that connect to NDC processes and link economic 
development with climate action.

To execute these transitions, countries need to identify finance needs, 
understand and assess policy implications and related reforms, and develop 
enabling frameworks to mobilise investment. In response to the specific needs 
of countries, the NDC Partnership will offer comprehensive and tailored support 
with the aim to provide clear and long-term policy direction designed to drive 
sustainable development.

The NDC Partnership is now operationalising this comprehensive approach by 
partnering with the UNFCCC on a trial with three countries, Jordan, St. Vincent 
and Cambodia, to help develop their LT-LEDS in alignment with NDCs and an 
emphasis on the Transparency Framework.

Minister of Environment for Jordan, His Excellency Dr. Al-Kharabsheh Saleh, 
said: "We are thrilled to be part of the NDC Partnership-UNFCCC joint project 
on the LT-LEDS and NDC Thematic Call. We are eager to accelerate our climate 
action by highlighting linkages between our commitment to transparency, NDC 
implementation and our long-term planning for sustainable development."

NDC Partnership Global Director Pablo Vieira commented: "Through our Thematic 
Call, the NDC Partnership is inviting requests from developing countries to 
facilitate the development of LT-LEDS. LT-LEDS are powerful policy mechanisms 
that effectively link the future development of countries to climate, guiding 
national development towards resilience and net-zero emissions by or around 
2050. Countries, through their updated NDCs, have shown a vital increase in 
their ambition and commitment to climate action. By aligning their NDCs with 
long-term strategies, countries can integrate climate action into their policy 
direction, creating a framework to attract and mobilize critical climate
