NDC Partnership and UNFCCC Secretariat Launch NDC 3.0 Navigator to Boost Climate Ambitions

The NDC Partnership and UNFCCC Secretariat launched the NDC 3.0 Navigator to help countries achieve their climate goals and implement ambitious NDCs by 2025.


The NDC Partnership and the UNFCCC Secretariat have launched the NDC 3.0 Navigator, a cutting-edge interactive tool designed to help countries enhance the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and accelerate the implementation of their climate goals.

Developed with input from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and over 30 other partners, this tool is set to revolutionize how countries prepare for the next round of NDCs, which is due in early 2025.

What is the NDC 3.0 Navigator?

The NDC 3.0 Navigator is an innovative tool offering seven “Routes to Ambitious and Implementable NDCs.”

It guides developing countries through nationally relevant approaches to preparing their NDCs.

By reflecting national priorities and addressing key implementation and financing needs, the Navigator aims to strengthen 2025 submissions.

Key Features of the NDC 3.0 Navigator

Self-DirectedAllows countries to explore options independently.
Non-PrescriptiveProvides guiding questions to direct countries to suitable options.
Comprehensive ResourcesIncludes case studies, guidance, information sources, and support links.
Living ToolWill be expanded and updated as new knowledge and experiences emerge.

Why Now?

The launch of the Navigator coincides with a critical period as countries prepare NDCs that must align with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The recent Global Stocktake (GST) at COP28 highlighted significant gaps in ambition, implementation pace, and access to finance.

The NDC 3.0 Navigator addresses these issues by incorporating the latest scientific findings and GST outcomes, ensuring that NDCs translate into actionable plans and investment opportunities.

Simon Stiell on NDCs

UNFCCC Executive Secretary Simon Stiell emphasized the importance of NDCs, stating:

“Nationally determined contributions can and must serve as powerful blueprints, propelling countries’ economies and societies forward with more jobs, gender equality, access to clean energy, and higher living standards. The NDC 3.0 Navigator is a vital tool connecting Parties to the necessary information and resources.”

International Cooperation and Ambition

NDC Partnership Co-Chair Dan Jørgensen, Minister of Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy of the Kingdom of Denmark highlighted the role of international cooperation in increasing climate ambitions.

He said:

“The GST reaffirmed the urgent need for international cooperation to deliver on the Paris Agreement. The NDC 3.0 Navigator assists countries in aligning their NDCs with global goals while ensuring a just transition.”

Support from Rwanda

NDC Partnership Co-Chair Dr. Jeanne d’Arc Mujawamariya, Minister of Environment of the Republic of Rwanda, praised the Navigator for helping countries develop ambitious and implementable NDCs.

“We need to explore all possible paths to stronger NDCs that position countries to act quickly on their goals and attract investment at scale,” she said.


The launch of the NDC 3.0 Navigator marks a significant step forward in global climate action.

The NDC Partnership and the UNFCCC Secretariat empower countries to enhance their climate ambitions and implement effective NDCs by providing a comprehensive and user-friendly tool.

As countries gather for the 60th session of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, the Navigator will play a crucial role in shaping the future of international climate policy.
