This EurAsia Regional NDC Dialogue, held in Istanbul, Turkey, was organised by UNDP, the UNFCCC Secretariat, and the UNDP/UNEP Global Support Programme (GSP) for National Communications and Biennial Update Reports, in coordination with the NDC Partnership.

The dialogue was part of the series of joint UNDP/UNFCCC regional dialogues funded by a number of donors and was hosted by the Government of Turkey. It brought together government representatives from the Eurasia region, developed country representatives, and international organizations/experts involved in the I/NDC process to:

  • Take stock of submitted I/NDCs from the region and the UNFCCC climate negotiations;
  • Provide a forum for exchanging country experiences and perspectives on preparing I/NDCs and planning for implementation, including envisioned challenges and support needs;
  • Discuss next steps and key technical and institutional issues related to NDC implementation at the national level (strengthening institutional arrangements, designing implementation plans, developing systems to monitor progress toward NDC goals, mobilizing resources, etc.); and
  • Explore ways to engage the private sector in NDC implementation

The dialogue was attended by approximatley 100 participants, including representatives from 30 Eurasian countries, as well as other countries and organizations.
