CAN Submissions: Features and Information Requirements for NDCs, October 2016

The Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA) invited Parties to submit, by 30 September 2016, their views on Item 3 on the APA agenda, in order to focus the work of the APA. CAN welcomes this opportunity and would like to present its view on the matter, particularly, on the issues of “features of NDCs” and “information to facilitate clarity, transparency and understanding of NDCs”.
CAN recognizes that the NDCs include various elements beyond mitigation but the discussion below focuses on mitigation aspects only.
