The Africa Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Hub was launched in November 2017 at the Africa Day of the twenty-third United Nations Framework on Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP23) in Bonn, Germany. The Hub is a direct response to the call made by African countries for support towards the implementation of their NDCs. Its goal is to provide African countries with the tools required for the effective delivery of their Paris Agreement commitments, in a coordinated manner and accordance with their development priorities. The Hub serves as a collaborative platform for member institutions to explore ways and means to efficiently deliver NDC support.
The Africa NDC Hub engages with national and sub-national non-state actors as well as private sector representatives on appropriate policies, strategies, and actions tailored to suit the needs of African countries and ensure the effective transformation of NDCs into bankable and implementable projects/programmes. Building on its members' solid experience of participating in Africa’s development, including managing climate initiatives and climate funds, the Hub draws upon the synergies of ongoing regional, national and sectoral efforts to simultaneously deliver the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Africa NDC Hub is administered by a technical committee and its work programme is managed by a secretariat hosted at the African Development Bank. Its membership is currently comprised of twenty member institutions and the NDC Partnership as a collaborating partner.
