National Climate Change Actions

Summarized Information derived from Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) submitted by parties

Emissions mitigation: Reduce GHG emissions by 6% (in relation to GHG emissions BAU levels (2007)) including LULUCF by 2030 unconditionally and reduce GHG emissions by 11.6% by 2030 conditional to external support in the sectors of agriculture, forestry, changes in land use, solid wastes, transportation, electricity production, residential and energy in the manufacturing industries. Adaptation: Strategic adaptation objectives: 1) Reduce the vulnerability to the impacts of climate change on the development of adaptation and resilience capabilities and 2) Facilitate the coherent integration of adaptations to climate change in policies, programmes or activities, new or already existing, in the specific processes of development planning and in the strategies of the relevant sectors at different levels. Priority sectors for adaptation: Sustainable Land Management, Forestry, Energy, Environmental education and Food.
