The conference

The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are the basis for countries to achieve their climate goals and contribute to the Paris Agreement objectives. As the implementation of current climate pledges becomes increasingly important, coordination among the international climate community is, therefore, vital to keep ambition high and underline collective progress.

Throughout the years, the Global NDC Conference has become an international forum to discuss NDCs. It presents a space for strengthening networks, showcasing innovative ideas, building momentum, reflecting, and clarifying the NDC formulation and implementation processes that lead to ambitious climate policy and action. Our last two editions (in 2017 and 2019) gathered more than 600 participants from 80 countries.

In 2023, the Global NDC Conference aimed to inspire climate practitioners and policy makers to lead and contribute to processes and coordination that enable just, feasible and financeable NDCs, grounded in learning from implementation and previous updates. The Global NDC Conference 2023 took place in Berlin from 31 May-2 June 2023.
