OECS Joins NDC Partnership

OECS Joins NDC Partnership

The OECS Commission is proud to be one of the newest members of the NDC Partnership, an initiative launched at COP22 in Marrakesh, Morrocco, to build in-country capacity and increase knowledge sharing so that climate policies have meaningful and enduring impacts, and drive increasing global ambition over time.

Made up of developing and developed countries and international institutions, the Partnership:

  • Facilitates Technical Assistance and Knowledge Sharing: The Partnership supports countries in defining processes, policies, and plans to advance NDC implementation, while facilitating access to targeted technical assistance and fostering greater collaboration across sectors.
  • Creates and Disseminates Insightful Knowledge Products that Fill Information Gaps: The Partnership raises awareness of and enhances access to climate support initiatives, best practices, analytical tools, and resources. Information to address specific implementation needs is made available through online portals, as well as communities and networks that generate opportunities for knowledge sharing.
  • Promotes Enhanced Financial Support for NDC Implementation: The Partnership works with governments to better understand and address constraints so that they may access bilateral and international support programs. The Partnership aims to align development finance initiatives more strongly and coherently with NDC implementation.

Live as of November 2, the NDC Partnership launched Climate Watch, an online platform that puts comprehensive, up-to-date climate data and analysis at the world’s fingertips.

A true product of partnership, Climate Watch, brings together dozens of data sets to empower policymakers, researchers and others with the information they need to help countries achieve ambitious climate goals while enhancing sustainable development.

With the most recent additions of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), Uruguay and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), the Partnership is now composed of 62 country members and eleven international institutions.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
