The Paris Agreement on Climate Change requires Parties to submit new or updated national climate action plans, the so-called Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) every five years. Nine years after its adoption, many countries are now in the process of revising or updating their NDCs. While climate change threatens livelihoods and human security across the board, women and girls, particularly those who are living in poverty, often face higher risks and greater burdens from climate change. Women are agents of change, yet they are frequently viewed as passive victims who are ‘vulnerable’ to climate change. Parties are required to submit their NDC 3.0, by February 2025, to allow for sufficient time for the preparation of the compilation and synthesis report in advance of CMA7 COP 30 (November 2025).

This NDC guide document aims to share insights into the information presented in the UNFCCC NDC summary report 2021(with a focus on gender, adaptation, and local communities) as well as provide CARE’s recommendations on how to advance gender in the NDC 3.0 process.
