How to Track the Progress of NDC—Approach of Multi-layer PDCA-cycles
The session will begin with a presentation on the outline of “what was decided at Katowice on NDC and transparency” and focuses on “how the required tracking of the progress process of NDC could be operationalised domestically”. The answer is an institutional arrangement of multi-layer PDCA cycles. The session will emphasise how such an arrangement could result in “benefits” (for the primary objective of the policies and measures, rather than for ancillary GHG emission reductions), by showing examples from the top-layer (NDC target) to the middle-layer (sector action plan) and then to the bottom-layer (concrete programmes/actions). The importance of several KPIs and the relation to the GHG MRV are pointed out.
The presentation is followed by a panel of Japanese experts on sectoral policies (electricity and renewable energies) in developing countries, with short presentations, followed by an Indian high level ex-policymaker responsible for energy saving policy. They are expected to discuss how Naoki Matsuo’s approach could be specifically applied to sectoral policies/programmes.
