FROM THE FIELD: Protecting the post-pandemic planet

UNDP has been working for over a decade with governments on developing what are known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which outline commitments made by individual states to combat climate change. 

These commitments, which focus on forestry, energy, environment and oceans, are part of the Paris Agreement on climate change which aims to restrict the global increase in temperatures to 2 degrees Celsius and hopefully 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

COVID-19 continues to disrupt the life of billions globally, pushing tens of million into extreme poverty and straining health and social security systems, as countries face the deepest global recession in 75 years.

Read more here, to find out why UNDP believes the post-COVID-19 recovery will be more successful if environmental and climate planning is prioritized.
