Duties and Responsibilities

The project entitled “NDC Action – Facilitating implementation of climate-resilient and low-carbon development aligned with national and global goals” is implemented in Mongolia by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre (UNEP-CCC) in close collaboration with identified national institutions.

To achieve the adaptation and mitigation goals of the Nationally-Determined Contributions (NDCs), countries need to translate their broad NDCs into specific policies, programmes and financing plans for actions identified to achieve NDC goals. NDCs typically list these actions, but the descriptions often lack specificity and details (particularly regarding adaptation) and are generally weak on institutional arrangements and transparency. By translating each NDC into sectoral portfolios of policies and programmes, the project will bridge the gap between the content of the NDCs and the information and capacity required for their implementation. Aligning with Mongolia’s own NDC priorities, the NDC Action Project bridges this gap.

The project secures a multistakeholder and high-level engagement; provide the technical support to strengthen the capacity of Line Ministries and Subregional government bodies responsible for NDC implementation; support development of a portfolio of sectoral policies and programmes for two priority sectors selected in each country; support development of investment plans in these sectors; and facilitate experience-sharing, both among the partner countries and with other countries. In support of the achievement of the objectives and expected results of the project, a consultancy is called to support the support the NDC Action project team based in Copenhagen and Paris in implementation of the project activities, in close cooperation with the National Technical Institutes (NTIs) hired for technical outputs of the project
