About the UN Climate Change - UN Development Regional NDC Dialogues
In 2014, the UN Climate Change and UN Development Programme (UNDP) launched a series of regional technical dialogues on climate change to support countries in preparing their intended contributions ahead of the 2015 Conference of Parties (COP). The dialogues have since supported countries in preparing for the implementation of their national climate targets or Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in an effort to meet the global goals of the historic 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
The regional dialogues provide an important, neutral and inclusive platform that not only fosters peer-to-peer learning and south-south exchange among country government representatives but also engages other key stakeholders such as the private sector, multilateral organisations, civil society and other institutions involved in NDC planning and implementation.
To date 19 such dialogues have been carried out around the world to date, engaging over 2,000 participants from over 150 developing countries. UN Climate Change and UNDP will be extending the series of regional technical dialogues into 2019-2020 to support countries in preparing more ambitious second NDCs and strengthening capacities to track NDC implementation progress - building on lessons learned and progress to date in implementing initial NDCs and considering the outcomes of the Talanoa Dialogue and COP24.
These events have been made possible through the generous financial support from the European Union, GIZ and the governments of Germany, Japan and Norway, as well from Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, and the United Kingdom and United States, and are organized in collaboration with the NDC Partnership.
The inaugural Investment COP will deliver keynotes, panel discussions, presentations by governments and investors on projects and solutions, workshops, informal networking and organized matchmaking.

As countries look to revise their NDCs and accelerate climate action to 2020 and beyond, integrating gender equality into NDC planning and implementation takes on significant global importance for ensuring effective NDC action and equitable outcomes.
