National Climate Change Actions

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

Emissions mitigation: Reduce GHG emissions by 32% (in relation to GHG emissions BAU levels (2010)) by 2030 conditional to external support in sectors of energy, industrial processes, agriculture, waste and LULUCF and to reduce GHG emissions by 13% from BAU levels by 2030 unconditionally. Adaptation: Priorities : 1) Protection of populations, through a risk-­prevention management approach, particularly in the most vulnerable areas; 2) Protection of natural heritage, biodiversity, forestry and fishery resources, through an ecosystem-­based adaptation approach; 3) Protection of climate-­sensitive production systems, such as agriculture and tourism, as well as high-­risk infrastructures; 4) Protection of the cultural heritage of the Kingdom through education and awareness actions, and efforts to preserve ancestral good practices in highly vulnerable sectors, such as water and agriculture.
