Discussion Paper: NDC Features, Transparency and Ambition
This discussion paper addresses some of the key questions discussed at the 2016 Annual Partnership Retreat, namely: What are nationally determined contribution (NDC) features? What is the difference between these features and the (accompanying) information for clarity, transparency and understanding (CTU)? What are the implications of such features and CTU information for accounting? How do features and accompanying information relate to the transparency modalities, procedures and guidelines and to the ambition mechanism associated with the global stocktake (GST)?
The paper first underlines the mandates from Paris and the conclusions from Marrakech and then focuses on features and CTU. Download the discussion paper here.
