Ambition and NDCs

The CAN Ambition and Nationally Determined Contributions Group coordinates advocacy and policy work around countries’ commitments to provide a global response to climate change through ambitious nationally determined efforts that progress over time in order to achieve the long-term temperature goals of the Paris Agreement in a just and equitable manner for people and planet.

This working group deals with the nationally determined contributions (NDC) process anchored in the UNFCCC, but also ventures outside of the UNFCCC space.

In particular, it aims at bringing together ambition raising, NDC enhancement and implementation at the national and international level. The group develops joint strategies for holding governments accountable to their respective commitments, and collects and collates data and knowledge on opportunities and barriers for enhancing climate ambition and climate action.
