INDC – Intended Nationally Determined Contribution

INDC Intended Nationally Determined ContributionsINDCs are the plans countries write which describe which climate action they’re intending to take, to contribute to the global efforts to combat climate change. INDC stands for Intended Nationally Determined Contribution. The plans can include mitigation efforts, adaptation measures and intended or needed climate finance. Once the plans have been submitted to the UN and accepted, they turn into “NDCs” as in Nationally Determined Contributions – the intention is gone, now it’s decided.

The UNFCCC has more information and also runs a web portal where all submitted INDCs are collected and made available: INDC Submission Portal
