The PCCB working group on identifying capacity gaps and needs addresses the following PCCB mandates:
PCCB Pilot Exercise on Capacity Gaps and Needs
At its second meeting (May 2018), the PCCB launched a national-level pilot exercise on assessing capacity gaps and needs related to NDC implementation.
Six PCCB members volunteered to conduct this work in their home countries. The countries are: Burundi, China, Dominican Republic, Georgia, Guatemala and Indonesia.
PCCB members participating in the exercise are reaching out to key stakeholders involved in NDC implementation in their respective countries to gather comprehensive information on NDC-related capacity-building needs and gaps, as well as success factors, good practices or lessons learned with regard to closing existing capacity gaps.
The information gathered by the PCCB members will feed into a compilation and synthesis report by on capacity-building gaps and needs related to NDC implementation, which may also include policy recommendations to the COP.
The pilot exercise is expected to be concluded in early 2019, so as to allow for the preparation and launch of the synthesis report ahead of the 3rd meeting of the PCCB in conjunction with SBI 50 (June 2019).
