In advance of COP21, more than 170 countries have so far pledged to implement national climate actions, INDCs. While the Paris negotiations will decide the future framework for these INDCs, this event looked at means of supporting implementation of national contributions that already exist and could be strengthened. Specifically, the discussion focused on technology needs assessments (TNAs) and current climate finance flows.
The discussion was organised within the work done by the EU funded research project POLIMP, which aims to make information on climate policy choices and their implications at EU and UN level accessible to decision makers.
