UNEP DTU Releases Guidance Note on Developing INDCs

December 3, 2015

Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) entail the specific contribution that each Party will propose towards achieving the objective of the Convention, taking into account Parties’ national circumstances, capabilities and the observance of the principle of ‘Common But Differentiated Responsibilities and Respective Capabilities’ (CBDR & RC).

This Guidance Note seeks to explain the elements of the Lima Decision and its implications for developing INDCs. Further, the note explains different ways in which countries could express the mitigation and adaptation components of their INDC, and how countries can identify their unconditional contributions.
