Action pledges under the Nairobi work programme
 

Action pledges provide an interactive way for Nairobi work programme partners, including Parties, IGOs, NGOs and research institutes, to identify and commit publicly to undertaking activities towards the objectives and expected outcomes of the Nairobi work programme.

Action pledges can respond to:

  • A Call for Action
  • An objective of the Nairobi work programme
  • A need identifed through mandated activities (e.g. workshops)

To make an action pledge and/or communicate proposals, contact nwp@unfccc.int

The SBSTA recognised at SB 28, June 2008, (SBSTA 28 report paragraph 14) the progress made in catalysing action by organizations outside the UNFCCC, and expressed its appreciation to the organizations that have undertaken, or stated their intention to undertake, actions in support of the objective of the Nairobi work programme. The SBSTA encourage organizations to enhance their efforts towards this end, including through the submission of action pledges to the secretariat, and to make the information on the results available to the SBSTA.
