Countries across the globe submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) at COP21. Six months after Paris Accord, there is an increasing call to focus on the implementation of INDCs, helping stakeholders in each country to understand what INDCs could mean for them and their businesses and to identify the type of assistance that Pacific countries require to help them effectively implement their INDCs. Key activities are to produce a simplified version of the INDCs for select Pacific countries, and co-organise a technical session with regional/national partners to inform farmers and stakeholders on the implications of the INDC and enhance their engagement in its implementation. Expected outputs are (i) simplified versions of the INDC submitted by select Pacific countries and information on their implications for farmers and potential investment in agriculture; (ii) a technical session on INDCs clearly identifying opportunities for investment and scaling-up of climate solutions; and (iii) an action plan to support farmers, private sector players and other stakeholders in the implementation of the INDCs. The event will be held back-to-back with the SIDS pre-COP22 conference in the same city.
