The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has been supporting the Government of Iraq in developing the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) for Iraq for the past few years. The NDC has now reached a final stage and is expected to be submitted to the UNFCCC the soonest, after the endorsement from the higher authorities in the country as to meet the country’s priorities. Now that the COP26 is on the horizon, UNDP is supporting Iraq’s delegates to effectively participate in the COP negotiations, which led to the extension of the project and a project document is needed to be developed.

On the other hand, UNDP has several agreements with UNEP to cooperatively support the Iraqi Ministry of Environment (MoEn) and to implement projects and lead campaigns in Iraq. A Project Implementation Plan (PIP) is needed for the new project that will cover the activities between UNDP and MoEn and/or UNEP.
