Compilation of INDCs
Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) are a new legally binding instrument under the UNFCCC. INDCs document the action that countries (both Annex 1 and non-Annex 1) will take on climate change. The SLoCaT Partnership is compiling a database of INDCs as they are submitted, seen through the lens of the transport sector. INDCs represent a bottom-up, nationally determined process, based on this they have the potential to drive progress in countries, especially in the global south, towards more pro-active climate policies. INDCs may also give new life to transport NAMAs, by making them a critical short-term element to prepare for mitigation or adaptation strategies in a post-2020 framework.
