How Can Development Cooperation Support Climate Action?

Welcome to a webinar on international support to national climate change action, with a focus on Nationally Determined Contributions. This digital event is organized by EBA in collaboration with Sida.

Two recent reports have assessed the alignment of Swedish development cooperation with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change: the EBA working paper Alignment of Sweden’s Multilateral Aid with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (2020:November) and a Sida report on the Alignment of Swedish Bilateral Development Cooperation with the Paris Climate Agreement. In both reports, support to countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) stands out as key to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. In addition, contributions to the somewhat vague and elusive “transformation” of societies are called for to lower greenhouse gas emissions and increase resilience towards climate change. Against this background, this webinar will examine how development cooperation can best help save the climate.
