The Regional Dialogue on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) for the Caribbean is co-organised by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the Secretariat of UN Climate Change (UNFCCC), in coordination with the NDC Partnership, to advance the exchange of knowledge and ideas on the implementation of country climate targets for the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.  

The conference is hosted the Government of St. Lucia, in collaboration with the NDC Partnership, and is made possible by the generous support from the European Union and the Governments of Germany, Japan and Norway. The Dialogue will convene government representatives from the Caribbean (including from ministries of environment, planning, finance, and energy), as well as representatives of international organizations and other institutions involved in NDC implementation.

The Caribbean Dialogue is part of a series which was launched in 2014 to provide a forum for peer-to-peer exchange on the design of intended NDCs, before transitioning to address issues of NDC implementation.



  • Exchange experiences and views related to NDC implementation planning – particularly in the energy sector, including linkages to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other planning processes, as well as opportunities to advance gender equality
  • Discuss how to implement, finance and monitor Adaptation in the framework of the NDC
  • Discuss future steps on NDCs, including finance considerations of NDC implementation and NDCs in the context of the Talanoa Dialogue, raising ambition, and long-term development strategies
