New York,December 2015 -

At the 21st Conference Of Parties (COP21) unfolding this week in Paris, all parties must commit to a robust agreement that is binding and ambitious enough to stem the ongoing rise in global temperatures.

UNDP is visible in supporting an outcome that will help bolster efforts to tackle climate change, and place countries on the path towards zero-carbon, sustainable development.

As the UN's largest implementer of programs and mechanisms that will be agreed in Paris, we are focusing on getting that job done. It means "translating the agreement in real action on the ground", as Jo Scheuer, Director of Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction,explains.

Our responsibility will be to make sure that what is agreed upon can actually be delivered, in more than 140 countries where we work, with equitable responses to climate change.

Our involvement started well before this summit. UNDP's extensive climate change approach includes mitigation and sustainable energy, climate change adaptation and forestry. We directly helped countries develop and finalize theirrespective climate targets and actions (known as Intended Nationally Determined Contributions, or INDCs). These INDCs are meant to ensure that each country has identified its own contextually-appropriate targets and actions and UNDP will support them to achieve success against their targets.

UNDP is Climate Neutral as of 2014

UNDP has taken another major step in demonstrating that we "walk the talk" inthe fight against climate change.
From green building renovations and use of photovoltaic power to bicycling programs, staff throughout the organization are developing efficient and creative solutions to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and minimize our overall impact on the environment.

Building on these achievements and expanding efforts to increase energy efficiency and utilization of renewable energy, UNDP has recently adopted a target for reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions from global operations by 10% over 5 years.

Each year, from 2014 onwards, UNDP will offset its remaining Greenhouse Gas emissions with Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) from theAdaptation Fund – where revenues from credit sales support adaptation projects in the poorest communities. Read more

Annual Business Plan 2016

On the 16 of November, the Executive Group approvedUNDP's Annual Business Plan (ABP) for 2016.

The ABP is an important tool for managing UNDP strategically, letting us set the direction of the organisation from year-to-year in a systematic, rather than ad-hoc, manner.

This year's ABP has beenlaunched two months earlier than usual, leaving time to bureaux and Country Offices to develop their Integrated Work Plans for 2016.
