Reflections on EU capacity building support to the first round of NDCs. What lessons can be used in preparations of the next NDC round?

Henning Wuester, Director of ICAT, will speak at a Paris Committee on Capacity Building (PCCB) Hub event that aims at reflecting on European Union, including Member State-led, capacity-building activities that were carried out in the pre-Paris Agreement period and were aimed at supporting the formulation of INDCs. The primary purpose will be to assess and summarise the relevant lessons learned so future capacity-building activities supporting the NDC updating could be better informed and improved by these experiences.
