The UNFCCC Paris Committee on Capacity Building (PCCB) has published the “PCCB toolkit to assess capacity-building gaps and needs to implement the Paris Agreement” as a response to a recommendation from a 2019 UNFCCC technical paper highlighting the need for such a document.
The toolkit draws upon the capacity assessment work of development agencies and international experts, and it includes case studies from several countries presenting methods to identify and address capacity needs and gaps. The hands-on examples, best practices, tools, and clear policy options presented by the toolkit seek to help officials in implementing effective nationally determined contributions (NDCs) tailored to their country’s circumstances, ultimately helping to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The PCCB is organizing a virtual event to exhibit and explore tools and methodologies to assess capacity-building needs and gaps to respond to climate change. The event will take place on the 15th March 2022 from 14:00-15:30 CET.
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) representative will be part of the panel to discuss tools and methodologies used to assess capacity-building, as well as the biggest challenges linked to effectively assessing capacity needs and gaps, and the way forward.
