NAZCA = Non-State Actor Zone for Climate Action
NAZCA is a global platform that brings together the commitments to action by companies, cities, subnational regions, investors and civil society organizations to address climate change.
NAZCA was launched by the Peruvian Presidency of COP20, alongside the Lima Paris Action Agenda (LPAA) in 2014. It was a central tool for the LPAA and the French Presidency to build momentum and support the adoption of the universal climate agreement at COP21. This culminated with its inclusion in the Paris outcome where countries welcome the efforts of these actors to scale up their climate actions and encourages the registration of these actions on NAZCA. As such, NAZCA will continue to play a key role in providing visibility and tracking the diversity of climate action and mobilizing broader engagement to help countries achieve and exceed their national commitments.
Information relating to the commitments recorded on this website has been provided by our core data partners: CDP, carbonn Climate Registry, The Climate Group, the Investors on Climate Change, the UN Global Compact, the Covenant of Mayors, the Climate Bonds Initiative and the UNEP Climate Initiatives Platform.
These partners have been selected due to an established track record of data management and assessment and due to the fact that they can track commitments over time to ensure progress.
PivotGoals and Winston Eco-Strategies also acted as a data resource for the initial launch.
Additional data partners will be sought throughout the year. Please contact us for more information.
Please be aware that not every commitment reported to our data partners is currently captured on this website. For a full breakdown of all actions reported to them, visit their websites directly.
