NDC Status 

Azerbaijan submitted its revised NDC in October 2023.

The revision of the NDC was supported by the European Union (EU) through the EU4Climate initiative. Funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP, EU4Climate supports six countries in the Eastern Partnership implement the Paris Agreement and improve climate policies and legislation. In Azerbaijan, EU4Climate is also providing support with preparing the NDC Finance Strategy and Investment Plan.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • Azerbaijan’s revised NDC commits to a 40% reduction in emissions by 2050, compared to 1990 levels, conditional on international support.
  • The sectors identified for mitigation measures include energy, industrial processes and product use, agriculture, land use, land use change and forestry, and waste.
  • The revised NDC also confirms that the country will continue to plan and implement appropriate adaptation measures for particularly vulnerable sectors like agriculture.
