The role of co-chairs

Two co-chairs are chosen for the NDC Partnership and represent a developed and developing country.

The co-chairs serve as chairs for meetings of the Steering Committee and the annual NDC Partnership Member Forum. The co-chairs provide guidance to the Support Unit on issues related to overall strategy and the Work Program.

The co-chairs are selected based on consultation with all members of the Partnership, with two-year terms.
