Towards Green Climate Fund Accreditation and Support
The ground-breaking Paris Agreement on climate change was adopted in 2015, and it entered into force within a year. By November 2017, 170 countries, including a majority of Sida’s cooperation countries, had ratified it. The Agreement aims to keep the temperature increase below 2°C, and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C, and to enhance the capacity to adapt to climate change. The main tool to achieve the goals is countries’ own Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Sida supports implementation of a large number of actions in different countries that are contributing to NDCs and the implementation of the Paris Agreement. However, there is a great need and potential to support this development further.
