The general objective of the consultation session, which began on Thursday, November 12th, 2020, is to improve knowledge on the issues and implications of the Paris Agreement in general and the nationally determined contribution (NDC) in particular. Indeed, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has the essential function of supporting the country’s actions to implement the 2030 Program, within the framework of the United Nations Development System, giving top priority to poverty eradication.
Also, through its climate pledge “Securing the 2030 agenda through bolder climate action,” UNDP, like 113 countries, provides the necessary support to strengthen NDCs, in close collaboration with partners of the United Nations System (UNEP, FAO), GGGI, NDC Partnership, SNV, Climate Analytics, and other strategic partners. It is in response to this action that the Permanent Secretariat of the National Council for Sustainable Development, which is coordinating the revision of the CDN 2020, is promoting the participation of local communities and local development actors.

What is the main objective of the workshop
Through this workshop, the aim is to improve knowledge on the Paris Agreement, the NDCs and their impact at all levels of development; share the challenges of updating the second version of Burkina Faso‘s NDC; examine the roles and contributing actions of sectoral and local actors in the development, implementation and monitoring of more ambitious updated NDCs; determine the specific capacity building needs of sectoral and local actors .
Papers will include the presentation of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the presentation of the Burkina Faso NDC, the role of local actors in the development, implementation and monitoring/capitalization of a more ambitious Burkina Faso NDC.
The reference framework of the commitments of the Burkinabe State
The Paris Agreement aims to keep the rise in average global surface temperatures below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels, while “continuing action” to limit the rise in temperature to 1.5°C. This agreement recognizes the importance of the local scale in achieving the objectives of the NDCs.
In Burkina Faso, the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement resulted in the development and adoption of its NDC at the end of 2015. The NDC is the reference framework for the commitments of the Burkina Faso government for the period up to 2030 in relation to its adaptation and mitigation efforts.
It aims, on the one hand, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and, on the other hand, to respond to the actual and expected impacts of climate change.
According to Célestin Poda, UNDP representative in Burkina, there is a dynamic of inclusive consultation. That is why they have already exchanged information and awareness actions with journalists and communicators, private actors, civil society organizations.
For Do Etienne Traoré, the national focal point of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the major challenge of the NDC lies in the commitment that Burkina Faso has made to contribute to the global effort to fight climate change, and these contributions are in line with the Paris Climate Agreement, adopted in 2015.
