As of April 2021, UNDP is now supporting 118 countries on NDC enhancement under the Climate Promise, including 38 LDCs, 28 SIDS, 14 higher-emitters, and 45 countries in fragile settings. This represents about 28% of global emissions.
Through this effort, UNDP and our partners provide targeted support to developing countries to enhance and implement their NDCs, leveraging NDC processes to advance sustainable development priorities, from gender equality to green job creation and recovery.
A majority of Climate Promise countries are raising ambition. Over 70% have already or still intend to raise mitigation ambition and over 95% raise adaptation ambition.
This report provides a snapshot of climate promise results to date, an overview of implementation progress in countries, highlights of country submissions, and a special feature of the People’s Climate Vote, Green Recovery, and working with the Private Sector to advance NDC enhancement and implementation.
