New Public Registries Showcase Countries’ Climate Plans
The UN Climate Change secretariat has launched two new public registries that showcase countries’ national climate action plans (NDCs) and communicate means of adapting to climate change impacts (ADCOMs) - two key instruments of the Paris Agreement.
Both registries for NDCs and ADCOMs were approved during COP 26 and serve as channels for information flowing towards the Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement that is to take place every five years starting in 2023.
Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change, said: “The public registry is a great move forward in showcasing Parties’ climate actions and providing up-to-date and reliable information on them. It ultimately helps to promote national and global accountability and transparency towards climate commitments and actions.”
Daniele Violetti, Senior Director Programmes Coordination at UN Climate Change, added: “The documents in the new registries reflect the world’s pledges and aspirations to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. The registries enhance their visibility, simplify their submission, and will enable all stakeholder to access them in centralized locations.”
