Climate: PNUD to spend $500,000 to help Togo implement Paris Agreement INDC  

(Togo First) - To tackle global warming effects, the PNUD will inject $500,000 in a project that will help Togo implement its intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) in line with the Paris Agreement. The objective here is to turn the INDC into an investment plan pegged to the country’s national development plan.

This was disclosed by the PNUD’s communication cell, after a meeting May 20 between Aliou Dia, resident representative of the institution in Togo, and David Olatokoun Wonou, minister of environment and sustainable development. 

The ministry plans on shortly sending a support request to the INDC Partnership which Togo is a part of, in regard to the project. The latter, in the long term, should boost the country’s resilience against climate change.

The Paris Agreement is the first global agreement aimed at tackling global warming. It was adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21), in Paris.
