What’s new in the Good Practice Database?

The Global NDC Conference, which took place from 12-14 June 2019 in Berlin, has given new impetus to the debate on how to increase the pace and scale of change to bring NDCs in line with the Paris Agreement. To assist this change, effective tools to learn from country best practices and lessons are needed. The Good Practice Database (GPD) showcases good practices around the world about how climate policies and actions are being effectively designed and implemented. Between April and June 2019, 12 new case studies have been added to the database as part of a joint initiative of PATPA, the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building Programme and the IKI NDC Support Cluster. They show the global spectrum of innovative climate action and may inspire other countries as they revise and update their own NDCs:

The GPD is jointly maintained by the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (PATPA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) NDC Support Programme, the IKI NDC Support Cluster, the NDC Partnership and the Low Emissions Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP). Over the next few months, further new case studies will be added to the GPD, covering a wide range of topics – from climate finance tracking, ecotourism and carbon taxes to low-carbon development strategies.
