The NDC Partnership (NDCP) was launched at the 22nd Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2016 in Marrakech. It is a coalition of countries and international institutions working together to ensure countries receive necessary technical and financial support to achieve ambitious climate and sustainable development targets as fast and effectively as possible. It builds in-country capacity and increases knowledge sharing for climate policies to have meaningful and enduring impacts, and drive increasing ambition over time. The NDC Partnership Support Unit (NDC Partnership SU) is hosted by the World Resources Institute (WRI) based in Washington DC and the UNFCCC in Bonn.

The Partnership works through country-driven approaches and is founded on the principle that effective cooperation, together with horizontal and vertical coordination can fast-track the achievement of results and enhance collective impact of invested resources. Member countries who request support and drive in-country implementation of NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions) obtain access to a large network of partners who can deliver a flexible array of services (i.e. technical assistance, financial support and knowledge enhancement).
