NDC Status

Argentina submitted its revised second NDC in November 2021.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Argentina's second NDC includes a more ambitious goal of not exceeding the net emission of 359 MtCO2e in 2030 (absolute, economy-wide, and unconditional), equivalent to a total decrease in emissions of 19% by 2030, compared to the historical peak reached in 2007, and a reduction of 25.7% compared to the previous NDC.
  • It further elaborates the adaptation component with qualitative targets, as well as the implementation process.
  • During COP26, Argentina further raised its mitigation target by not exceeding the net emission of 349 MtCO2e in 2030, representing a reduction of 27.7% compared to the first NDC submitted in 2016. This was officially communicated to the UNFCCC as an addendum to its second NDC.
