In this blog series, UNDP experts and practitioners share their perspective on issues of climate change, in the lead up to COP21 in December.
In preparation for the Climate Change Conference in Paris this December, all participating countries have been asked to develop and determine their own national contributions to slowing climate change. These proposed measures are referred to as “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” (INDCs), and to date, 121 countries have submitted one.
Macedonia submitted its INDC in August 2015, the 23rd country in the world to do so. This was the result of hard work and cooperation among various donors, institutions and stakeholders. The country’s INDC was based on detailed technical assessments performed by a large team of experts and on other relevant documents.
