Human Development Index rankingA lower number means a better human development score. Based on the Human Development Index (2021), developed by UNDP.
Conditional emissions reduction target by 2030
(compared to the benchmark scenario)The highest emissions reduction target, conditional or unconditional, included in the country’s latest NDC.
Benin submitted its revised NDC in October 2021.
Key highlights from the NDC
- For the coming years, the measures envisaged in the revised NDC, in the energy, agriculture and waste sectors are likely to contribute to reducing cumulative GHG emissions (excluding land use, land-use change and forestry) by approximately 48.75 Mt E CO2 compared to the benchmark scenario, i.e. a reduction of around 20.15% over the 2021-2030 period.
- The commitment is ambitious given its reduction targets focus on sectors key to economic development, particularly energy and agriculture.
- At the same time, Benin expanded its adaptation goals, with clearer targets and greater integration of gender and social inclusion.
