THE CLIMATE HELPDESK
Connecting members with world-class experts and peers on low emission development and NDC implementation.
Ad hoc support for NDCs, LT LEDS and transparency systems
Do you need support in designing, implementing or updating your Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), low emission development strategy (LEDS) or transparency systems? The Climate Helpdesk is available. It is a global advisory network providing rapid, high quality, short-term technical assistance for developing countries. The Climate Helpdesk is a joint service offered by two global initiatives: LEDS GP and Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (PATPA) in cooperation with the NDC Partnership. The Secretariat of the Climate Helpdesk is hosted by the GIZ Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA).
The Climate Helpdesk accepts requests from developing countries and government agencies. Technical and other institutions and organisations, that are working directly with national governments to plan and implement their NDCs, LEDS or transparency systems, may also request support, if endorsed by the national UNFCCC focal point or the Ministry of Environment .

The Climate Helpdesk in Action
Examples of Support
The Ministry of Environment and Tourism organised a workshop in Ulaanbaatar where the results of the analysis were presented. 30 participants from the Ministry itself, the Ministry of Justice and Internal Affairs as well as various environmental organisations, civil society and academic institutions, had the opportunity to discuss the expectations for a climate change law and what benefits it would offer. This served to involve different stakeholders as a starting point for designing the climate law.
The Mongolian Ministry of Environment and Tourism is planning to establish a national law on climate protection in order to provide a suitable institutional framework for delivering its nationally determined contribution (NDC). With a new legal basis for climate action, the Ministry intends to clarify governmental structures and mandates, and set up mechanisms for cross-sectoral coordination. To get the process under way and lay the foundations for a dialogue on developing the new law, the Ministry requested technical assistance.
