Analysis of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs)
USAID has published a new analysis of the post-2020 climate action plans of selected developing countries, which gives climate change practitioners insights into the status of each country’s national climate strategy and can help them make strategic decisions about future activities related to the Paris Agreement. The Analysis of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) presents summaries of the INDCs submitted to the UNFCCC by 37 developing countries, including partner countries of the Enhancing Capacity for Low Emissions Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) programme. Each country profile includes information from the INDC on the following themes: Unconditional and conditional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets; Analytical basis for developing the emissions reduction targets; Mitigation actions being undertaken by the country; Adaptation strategies; Existing policy framework of the country’s INDC, and Financial and technical assistance required. The analysis covers 14 countries in Asia, 10 in Africa, 6 in Europe/Eurasia (E&E) and 7 in Latin America and Caribbean (LAC).
