The Partnership is open to all countries as well as international institutions that are committed to ambitious NDC and related SDG implementation. Non-state actors including non-governmental organizations, development finance institutions and others are also able to participate as associate members.  Membership is voluntary and defined by support for the Partnership’s guiding principles that will help orient its work and that of partners. The Partnership engages both with ministries leading on international climate issues as well as those leading on national economic and development planning.
