Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)

Since the Paris Agreement in 2015, states submit their national greenhouse gas reduction targets. Every five years, each country determines and submits to the UN Climate Secretariat (UNFCCC) the climate actions it intends to undertake to reduce its national emissions and adapt to climate change.

Reference: UNFCCC.
