Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are national climate change mitigation plans which highlight country’s climate actions through climate related targets, policies and projects. As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, countries are required to prepare, communicate and maintain successive NDCs in contribution to global climate action.
The Regional Pacific Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Hub arose as a response to calls from Pacific Island Countries (PICs) for a regional platform to support them in implementing, enhancing and financing their NDCs. The NDC Hub was officially launched by the Prime Minister of Fiji and COP23 President Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama in 2017 in Bonn, Germany. The Pacific NDC Hub works with its 15 member countries and these are: the Cook Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
The Regional Pacific NDC Hub is implemented through a partnership between the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), the Pacific Community (SPC) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) in contribution to NDC Partnership, with financial support from Germany, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australian Governments.
