States will play a key role in meeting the targets set under the NDCs. Many states have prepared State Action Plans on Climate Change (SAPCCs) and initiated other climate relevant measures. An enormous amount of funding is required to meet these goals, and states can access some of this funding from sources like centrally sponsored schemes and dedicated domestic and international climate funds like the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Now states must begin to identify various funding sources and target these sources based on their specific needs.
