The current scope and ambition of buildings sector commitments are insufficient to meet the Paris Agreement goals. Despite 136 countries having acknowledged the need for building sector actions in their NDCs, more work is needed to increase the coverage and ambition of these actions.
Based on GlobalABC’s NDC Guide, this webinar looks at NDCs status in Asia-Pacific. It focuses on India and China, two countries with rapid floor area increase and energy demand growth. India and China have both taken steps to raise ambition levels in their NDCs, adressing energy efficiency in their rapidly growing building stock. India for instance with their Energy Conservation Building Code for Residential Buildings (ECBC-R), China with its policy initiatives for increasing the coverage of green buildings and large scale energy efficiency retrofitting.
Speakers will include representatives from the India Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and the China Academy of Building Research (CABR), as well as UNFCCC, the NDC Partnership (TBC), and the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN)/Pansolutions.
