Building on the deep experience of the NDC Support Programme, UNDP launched the Climate Promise in 2019 to support countries with the development of stronger, more ambitious climate plans. The programme's expertise in climate planning, transparency, finance, gender and private sector engagement had been honed over the course of 8 years, thanks to the generous support by the European Union and the governments of Germany and Spain. Given the substantial recovery needs from the COVID-19 crisis, the Climate Promise is now working with governments to green the recovery by linking the climate plans to the stimulus packages and long-term planning. Particular attention is paid to protecting vulnerable communities.
