Starting Point – the NDC process

Your Contribution

The tools on this site help citizen groups to
provide inputs into your country’s climate change
strategy. The ‘nationally determined contribution’
on climate change requires countries to carry out
consultations with civil society and indigenous
peoples, and to adopt a transparency framework.
At the national level, the NDC will likely include a
menu of policy options and proposed programs.
The tools on this site focus on land – particularly
agriculture and forestry, food and conservation.
This section suggests tools for groups to develop
and use in pursuit of their own vision of a high-
ambition ‘nationally determined contribution’.
CLARA members can add their experiences and
tools to implement rights-based approaches to
land management, good for people and planet.

For Teachers & Students

Students can build their knowledge in different phases:

PREPARATION what’s the NDC? Who’s in charge of preparing it? How can civil society groups express their ideas?

‘WHATS IN’ looking at the draft NDC – What land use actions are proposed? What plans for consultation? What financial mechanisms?

AMBITION build your knowledge; learn ‘what to ask for’ in the NDC; strengthen your group’s engagement.

Students can also focus on the themes woven through the different website phases based on specific topics of interest.

Watch this short video  explaining site themes and phases.

Teachers, please also look at the Facilitation tools.

CLARA members can assist in adapting materials for use in national classrooms and civil society learning projects.

For Facilitators

We’re building out a set of tools for Facilitators.  To begin, check out the peoplesNDC map below.  The arrows on the map correspond to 24 different climate action opportunities, emphasizing land-use sectors. This Facilitators Guide helps orient groups to those opportunities.

Video with more information about the map here.
