How to build Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)?

High level representatives and practitioners shared their experiences


Through the Programme Mitigation Action Plans and Scenarios (MAPS), a south-south collaboration, Brazil, Chile, Colombia & Peru have conducted nationally mandated research-processes for developing long-term scenarios. The countries are developing their INDCs based on the work under MAPS, with support from the Swiss & Danish Governments, CIFF & CDKN.

On Tuesday, December 9th, an event organized by Switzerland through Mitigation Action Plans and Scenarios (MAPS) Programme and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation took place at COP20 in collaboration with Chile, Colombia, Peru and the Brazilian Climate Change Forum.

Titled “Innovation in the development of INDCs. The MAPS Experience”, this was an occasion for participants to engage in a conversation with participant countries of the MAPS platform to discuss how this country-led process is fostering South-South Cooperation and helping developing countries to set their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs).
