NDC Status 

Côte d'Ivoire submitted its second NDC in May 2022.

Key highlights from the NDC
  • In its updated NDC, Côte d'Ivoire commits to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 30.41% by 2030 relative to business as usual, or 98.95% with international support. 
  • With additional mitigation measures in the Food and Land Use sector and the inclusion of new greenhouse gases, Côte d’Ivoire significantly raises its climate ambition, resolutely committing to carbon neutrality from 2030. 
  • In terms of adaptation, the country aims to reduce vulnerabilities and increase climate resilience across five priority sectors: agriculture, Food and Land Use, water, health, and coastal zones. 
  • The updated NDC also considers cross-cutting aspects including green jobs and just transition, gender, local authorities, and short-lived climate pollutants. 
  • The updated NDC will be implemented based on an investment plan to increase climate finance flows. Partnerships and Monitoring and Evaluation Plans, as well as a communication strategy, will also be used to further develop an enabling environment for climate actions.
