Webinar Series on Southeast Asian Countries’ Updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs): Spotlight on Thailand


About the Webinar

Under Article 4 of the 2015 Paris Agreement, State parties are required to “prepare, communicate and maintain successive nationally determined contributions” (Article 4.5) and to do so “every five years in accordance with decision 1/CP21” (Article 4.9). Countries are encouraged to show “progression” and “higher ambition” with each successive update. The Climate Change in Southeast Asia Programme at the ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute is delivering a Webinar Series on Southeast Asian countries’ new or updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) that were due to be submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change Secretariat (UNFCCC) in 2020.

This is the 3rd webinar of the series which aims to shine a spotlight on the key features of Thailand’s updated 2020 NDC targets, the progress of its NDCs and the long-term low emissions development strategies, as well as opportunities and challenges in the implementation of the NDCs moving forward.
