NDC Partnership (NDCP) has created a Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP) funding arrangement with the purpose to deliver targeted, fast-track technical support to countries to enhance the quality, raise the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions (NDCs).
Under the Paris Agreement, countries update their NDCs every five years cycle to indicate their nationally determined ambitions to limit, reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and interventions planned to adapt to the impacts of climate change. The revision of NDCs presents countries with significant opportunities to align their climate and development agendas to ensure climate-sensitive sustainable growth, but also presents challenges in reinventing policies and operations and mobilizing enough investment.

GGGI is supporting its member and partner countries in updating and raising the ambition of their NDCs for achieving the aims and objectives of the Paris Agreement. GGGI is a member of the NDCP. As part of the support under CAEP funding, GGGI is supporting the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) in revising its NDC with a focus on the Energy, Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) and Agriculture sectors.

Based on the GoPNG’s CAEP request, GGGI is providing technical assistance to GoPNG in the following areas/activities:

1. Develop Energy and AFOLU sectoral mitigation plans basing on GoPNG’s Climate Change Management Act 2015 and the corresponding implementation regulations through wider stakeholder consultations and technical training sessions. These will focus on key partners from Government and private sectors to identify and prioritize the sub-sectors, activities, measures, and policies, and identify the key components, actors, and their roles and responsibilities, for implementation of the regulations.
2. Update its Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) system for REDD+: Development of REDD+ quality systems by improving the data collection and archiving systems for the country’s satellite land monitoring system (SLMS) and the national forestry inventory (NFI) and GHG Inventory (GHG). Quality control methods and methodologies will be designed, and training provided on their application. The overall inventory improvement plan created by the Government will be further expanded by including implementation strategies and by identifying appropriate training programs for selected key Government staff to undertake.
3. Improve the key functions of the MRV for Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+): Expansion of the satellite land management system to include AFOLU and agriculture sectors. Key stakeholders will be identified, and through wider stakeholder consultations, the priority sub-sectors and activities identified. The necessary technological solutions will also be identified, and their implementation strategies created. The data collection, storage, and retention requirements, and corresponding guidelines will be created, as will be the necessary data archiving system specifications.
