Climate Vulnerability Index rankingA higher number means a higher vulnerability to climate change. Based on the ND-GAIN Index (2020), developed by the University of Notre Dame.
Human Development Index rankingA lower number means a better human development score. Based on the Human Development Index (2021), developed by UNDP.
Conditional CO2e emissions reduction target by 2030
(compared to business as usual)This figure represents the cumulative emissions reduction targets across three sectors: electricity, oil and gas, and transportation.
Egypt submitted its revised NDC in June 2022.
Key highlights from the NDC
- Egypt committed to reduce emissions by 33% in the electricity sector (70 Mt CO2e), 65% in the oil and gas sector (1.7 Mt CO2e), and 7% in the transportation sector (9 Mt CO2e) by 2030 compared to business-as-usual, conditional on external support.
- The country plans to install additional renewable energy capacities that will generate 42% of electricity by 2035.
- Egypt also enhanced the adaptation component in the revised NDC by setting more policy actions and measures across key sectors.
Adaptation and resilience areas in the NDC
- Disaster risk management
- Land and livestock management
