How to Incorporate Fundable Buildings Sector Actions in NDCs - Webinar Series
Date: Thursday, 8 August 2019, at 16:30 (CEST)
The current scope and ambition of buildings sector commitments are, insufficient to meet the Paris Agreement goals. Despite 136 countries have acknowledged the need for building sector actions in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), more work is needed to increase the coverage and ambition of these actions.
This webinar series will present practical steps that Latin American countries are taking to identify opportunities for incorporating ambitious building sector climate actions into NDCs. Based on GlobalABCs recently published Guide and case studies by leading countries including Argentina, Mexico, and Costa-Rica the webinar will describe and provide examples of the necessary levels of ambition, stakeholder engagement, governance and monitoring, verification and reporting required for fundable building sector actions, that can contribute to the Paris Climate Goals. The webinar will also feature a presentation from Brazil on how sub-national actions might influence the updating of NDCs to include building sector actions in 2020.
