The Paris Climate Change Agreement set the goals to secure a sustainable future for all, and now countries must translate those goals into concrete action. In their national climate action plans (Nationally Determined Contributions or "NDCs"), each country set out what they plan to contribute to the agreement's objectives.

On 7 June 2017, a free webinar titled “National Climate Plans (NDCs): Blueprints for a Global Transformation” will explain how the NDCs open up a new universe of opportunities for economic cooperation and partnership to realize mitigations and adaptation plans and increase climate resilience.

The webinar is organized by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC experts Claudio Forner, Team Lead at the Mitigation, Data and Analysis programme, and Dr. Koko Warner, Manager of Impacts, Vulnerability and Risks subprogramme will participate in the discussion and the questions and answers session moderated by Simona Costanzo-Sow, from the UNSSC.

The webinar will take place on 7 June 2017 from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm CEST (9:15 am to 10:15 am EDT). You can register here.
