THE CLARA GUIDE TO

Nationally Determined Contributions

A guide that informs and
empowers you to take action.

The Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) is each country’s national plan to address climate change. Countries submit an NDC as part of Paris Agreement obligations. Civil society and indigenous groups involved in climate change planning at local and national levels should also work to ensure that their priorities are reflected in the NDC.

CLARA is a diverse network of groups working on agriculture, forestry, conservation, and restoration. We prepared this guide to help civil society organizations in your country shape climate actions in the land sector.

Begin with this Getting Started Page describing how the site is structured.

Or, go to the CLARA NDC Map showing the pages most relevant to land-use and climate.

CLARA members also assist partners with engagement on land-use issues in NDCs.

The site log-in function allows you to access an area of the site where you can store information and take notes that helps build engagement with your country’s NDC.

This log-in function also helps teams and grassroots movements to build their own understanding of climate action and the NDC process; to agree on priorities; and to engage in dialogue with government officials.  Click here to watch a video about use of the site.

CLARA’s Map for Nationally Determined Contributions is designed to help civil and indigenous groups understand the NDC process and get involved in national climate change response plans.
