The Paris Climate Change Agreement set the goals, and now countries must translate them into action. The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) set out what each country plans to do as part of the Paris Agreement to contribute to the international effort to secure a sustainable future for all. This webinar explained how NDCs open up a new universe of economic and cooperation opportunities to realize the mitigation and adaptation plans and increase climate resilience.

The webinar featured Claudio Forner, team lead on mitigation at UN Climate Change and Koko Warner, manager of the UN Climate Change impacts, vulnerability and risks subprogramme. The discussion was moderated by Simona Costanzo-Sow, UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development.
