Each briefing paper presents concrete options for integrating sectoral measures in future NDCs, as well as more general cross-sectoral recommendations for moving forward with emissions-reductions measures. Written primarily from the perspective of climate change experts, with input and suggestions from sector colleagues, the briefing series’ intended target audience is twofold: first sectoral experts, who are facing the challenge of implementing the NDCs and related climate policies in their respective sectors; and second climate change experts, highlighting the relevance of the sector for NDC implementation.
This briefing paper covers finance in the context of NDCs. It presents finance needs in NDCs as well as sources of financial support, and discusses requirements for financing sector transformation.
This briefing paper discusses transparency and measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) in the NDC context. MRV serves to enhance the transparency of climate change actions, as well as clarify information about support that has been provided and received. MRV in this case refers to all measures that countries take to collect data on greenhouse gas emissions, mitigation actions and support, their efforts to compile this information in reports and inventories, and to subject these to review or analysis.
This briefing paper presents the situation and prospects for implementation of NDCs in the power sector. It thereby mainly focuses on the electricity supply side of the sector. Energy efficiency is covered in a separate briefing paper.
Energy efficiency with a focus on buildings
This briefing paper addresses the reflection and integration of energy efficiency in the NDCs. The buildings sector is singled out for specific analysis since – unlike some other areas of energy efficiency – the buildings sector is not covered in other briefing papers within this series.
This briefing paper presents the situation andprospects for implementation of NDCs in the transport sector. During the course of 2017, further enhanced recommendations for the transport sector will be published in a synthesis paper based on an in-depth analysis of empirical case studies conducted by the GIZ project Advancing Climate Strategies in Rapidly Motorising Countries.
This briefing paper presents the situation and prospects for implementation of NDCs in the agriculture sector. As far as agriculture affects deforestation and / or overlaps with land-use change policies and measures, those aspects are covered in a separate briefing paper on forestry and land-use change.
Forestry and land-use change
This briefing paper focuses on forestry but also covers issues related to land-use change, as the two issues are oftentimes inextricably linked. Agriculture is included to the extent that it affects deforestation and / or overlaps with land-use change policies and measures. All other aspects regarding agriculture are covered in a separate briefing paper.
