  • 2021 updated NDC:  Reduction of GHGs compared to BAU in the unconditional scenario is 10.77% by 2025, 19.6% by 2030 and 15.5% by 2050. Including efforts relying on external aid, total reduction is 16.25% by 2025, 29.42% by 2030 and 34.43% by 2050.  The potential for reducing GHG emissions is estimated in relation to the BAU, whose values are 92,511.38 Gg CO2eq in 2025; 107,522.71 Gg CO2eq in 2030 and 185,814.84 Gg CO2eq in 2050. 2016 INDC: 6.6% (unconditional), 11.6% (hybrid conditional), or 36.95% (adaptation co-benefits) reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 compared to the BAU scenarioEconomy-wide: Economy Wide
  • GHG reduction potential (Gg CO2eq) of adaptation actions compared to the BAU scenario, unconditional / total: By 2025: 4802.69 / 10328.49 By 2030: 22230.08 / 33072.70 By 2050: 33310.44 / 64648.60Adaptation: Adaptation
  • The reduction potential of the energy sector is estimated at 3,192.712 Gg CO2eq by 2025 for a potential of 1,228.661 Gg CO2eq for actions in the unconditional scenario and 1,964.051 Gg CO2eq for actions in the conditional scenario.  The numbers are the following for 2030: 2457,34 - 3928,11 - 6385,45 The numbers are the following for 2050: 7371,98 - 11784,31 - 19156,29Energy: Energy
  • From 2021 updated NDC: The GHG potential that can be sequestered is estimated at 262 Gg CO2eq in 2025; 614.80 Gg CO2eq in 2030 and 1,246.9 Gg CO2eq in 2050. The total (fully conditional) reduction for 2030 is 614.80 The total (fully conditional) reduction for  2050 is 1246.95 From 2016 INDC: -4% emissions by 2030Waste: Waste: General
  • From 2021 NDC:  potential of emission reductions from LULUCF in Gg CO2eq in unconditional / total scenarios are 7527.3 / 10096.8 (2025), 15054.6 / 20193.6 (2030), 13166.8 / 31153.2 (2050).  From 2016 INDC: -10% emissions of agriculture, land-use and forestry by 2030LULUCF: Agriculture
