The Asia Pacific NDC Dialogue is one of three in the UNDP/UNFCCC dialogue series that is taking place this year during regional Climate Weeks with the goal of increasing momentum for more ambitious and accelerated climate action. In doing so, the event serves as a contribution to the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit taking place on 23 September 2019 and COP25.

The event will also seek to build on the outcomes of last year’s NDC Dialogue for Asia and the Arab States, which was held from 3-5 October in Bangkok, as well as the recent Global NDC Conference held from 11-14 June 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

The dialogue is made possible through UNDP’s NDC Support Programme, which is financed by the European Commission and the governments of Germany and Spain, and GIZ. It serves as a contribution to the NDC Partnership.


  • Enhance the capacities of participating countries to prepare their second NDCs, building on lessons learned and progress to date in implementing initial NDCs;
  • Identify solutions to specific political and technical challenges countries are facing in implementing and enhancing NDCs;
  • Provide a forum for peer-to-peer learning and exchange of national experiences related to NDC implementation and enhancement;
    Provide a platform for linking national/regional interests with the international NDC process, and for strengthening existing and/or establishing new partnerships and commitments for ambitious climate action that help meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda.

Key messages and outcome of this dialogue will feed into the high-level segment of the AP Climate Week on September 3 “NDC implementation: Raising Ambition” session.
