SAIIA and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation invite you to a webinar focusing on enhancing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) across the SADC region.

NDCs form the backbone of the Paris Agreement. These national policy instruments communicate countries’ domestic climate commitments to the international community, report on progress and outline support that is needed to ensure effective implementation.

NDCs are required to be updated every five years to ensure increasing ambition and alignment with the latest climate science. SADC countries are at different stages in this process – five Member States have submitted their revised NDCs to the UNFCCC, while others are undergoing internal validation and stakeholder engagement.

The NDC revision process allows countries to reflect internally and draw on the experiences of others, both in the region and globally. This targeted virtual event will promote engagement and uptake of the key lessons of the NDC revision experiences of Rwanda, South Africa and Costa Rica.

Speakers include:

  • Mkhuthazi Steleki, Director of International Climate Change, Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries, South Africa
  • Herman Hakuzimana, Director of Climate Change and International Obligations Unit, Rwanda Environment Management Authority, Ministry of Environment, Rwanda
  • Marieke Veeger, Scenarios and Policy Researcher, University for International Cooperation (UCI), Costa Rica
  • Romy Chevallier, Climate Change Researcher, South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA)
